One of the best things I've discovered this first week of eating local is raw milk. I purchased the milk twice from Galens Homestead Acres in Clifton Springs NY. http://www.localharvest.org/farms/M11777
It has a great taste and I have skimmed the cream off the top and made homemade butter and creme fraiche! First let me tell you about the butter. Wow! It was unlike any I have ever had, even better than Elmview Dairy! (That is hard to beat!) Besides the unique flavor, it was super easy to make. I watched a few people make it on youtube first! The creme fraiche is new to me. I had if for the first time while at my husband's sisters in PA. She used it with my husband's demi glace, and with thyme butter. This was a sauce for homemade mushroom perogies. Blew us all away! Creme Fraiche is used in place of sour cream.
