We are so lucky here still to have farms and farming friends that produce different types of milks. The pictures above are of farm pasturized milk being enjoyed in the glass by my 5 yr old and a jug of yellow colostrum milk - worth its weight in gold.
Over the last couple of weeks: I've tried raw milk, colostrum milk (milk from the cow with the newborn calf), lightly pasturised in the farm kitchen full cream milk (enjoyed the same morning it was taken from the cow). All these are delicious and different but all extremely good. The raw milk super creamy grassy and sweet, the colostrum milk is a fabulous creamy yellowish color a little junketish and thick, the farm kitchen pasturized super creamy and sweet with a slightly pleasant boiled taste.
Then there are the various super market milks: Various fresh milks in the fridge and packet sterilized milks on the regular shelves. There are several grades of fresh supermarket milk. I am not a huge fan of any of them. They are sweet but not so clean tasting. Some have an almost bitter quality and all tend to go off very quickly.
If we have to go supermarket milk, I actually prefer the local Chiriqui brand of sterilized packet milk. It is sweet, thick, has real body, is fairly clean tasting, it also lasts for ever. I do not think I am alone this seems to be by far the best selling milk in the region judging by quick scans of other customers purchases at the checkout.
