Making Butter from Goat Milk
[Return to Topics]

After trying to make butter for 2 years from goat milk, I found a few secrets I will share. I put the milk in alum cream containers and let them sit in the fridge for 3 or 4 days. The longer they sit, the thicker the cream gets on top. It is surprising how much more cream you get this way. Then I skim off the cream from several containers, and let it sit at room temp. And then churn it. Takes less time to get the butter made this way. And there is way less milk with the cream after it has sat that long. If anyone has any great ideas on making cheese (easy kind) from goat milk, I would sure love to hear about it. Thanks and God Bless, Lil

Lil, I have never made goat cheese but I have heard that the book "Cheesemaking Made Easy" is a good one (link below) with recipes using goat milk. Recipes and supplies are also available from New England Cheesemaking Company at
