This is 2 gallons of farm fresh milk.
Stepson Clint and his wife have a small farm. Beside chickens and eggs, they also have 2 milk cows and we are fortunate that they share milk with us.
They can pasturize the milk and they can run it through a separator.
But, I like the whole milk with the nice layer of cream on top. If you look close, you can see that the cream is on the top and the milk is on the bottom.
There are lots of ways to use the cream. One of my favorites is this biscuit recipe from King Arthur Flour.
The biscuits are made with flour, cornstarch, some leavening and cream. There is no cut in butter or shortening because the cream has a high fat content. They are so fast to make up this way. I made about 3 recipes at a time, then freeze them all to bake off as we need them.
This cream also makes really nice butter.
Some the milk we will drink. I will probably make a large batch of pancakes and freeze them to use as we need them. Homemade pancakes are much better than Eggos.
