This is my first project with my goats milk, making butter.... Next will be yogurt, and ice cream and then cheese:) I'm just so excited I got to make something with it.... We usually drink it all...

Neat! how long did you have to work at getting cream?
A week and a half. I have 6 of those glass things that the butter is in. I put the lid on them, waited 2 days skimmed the cream, and then repeated. It only took 15 min to clump up too:) not too bad:)

what did you use to churn? I have a kitchenaid mixer, I just put it on with a cloth over top (so it doesn't go everywhere), and walk away until I hear clunking. usually not more than 5 min....

another idea that I've done before, is kefir the cream, and make kefir butter. it's like regular butter but with a hint of blue cheese. SOOO good!

I just put it in a jar and started shaking, 15 min later butter:) the thing I thought was great there was not that much milk when separating the butter from the milk.....

I might try the kefir butter, that sounds good:)

It was delicious:) My sister and niece from Florida is here and they love the raw goats milk, and now they love the butter, on the homemade biscuits and bread:) I'm hoping to be making it every 2 weeks or so:)

oh come on TDG. i'm sure you have enough milk to be able to make butter with!
Off the topic, but I read that you were moving back to Canada on another thread. Which part of Canada? My dad was from Winnipeg Manitoba, and we have relatives in Surrey and Vancouver BC.

Southern Ontario! i'll be going back to city life for a while to make some money (which means no more goatie antics :'( ), then likely we'll disappear into the bush somewhere around Algonquin park. hehe

Man, that's going to suck... No more goats for awhile:( At least you will know what you are looking for when the time comes to get another herd started:) I liked Ontario.... I like Canada in general though:)
