Every morning, I’ve got big choices to make: what to do with the 2-1/2 to 3+ gallons of raw Jersey milk I bring in from the barn. With limited refrigerator space, most of the milk’s gotta be turned into something almost right away. Last week I turned on the video camera while splitting up one morning’s milk — so I could show you what I did with it. Not every day is the same, but I’d say this one was fairly typical.

Apple-Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal (Soaked)

Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal | We can eat oatmeal year-round, but I have to say that baked oatmeal definitely crosses seasons. You can eat it hot or cold, as breakfast, snack or lunch -- and with eggs and milk baked in, you've got a high-quality protein boost. When my husband goes out of town (thankfully not often) I send along a tray of this and a jar of raw milk for his breakfasts on the road. | GNOWFGLINS.com

Lacto-Fermented Hummus

Yesterday, I made our family’s traditional hummus — a recipe handed down from my grandmother and namesake, Tata Wardee, to my mother and then to me. However, there was a difference: this time I lacto-fermented it. Yeah, yeah, by now you know that I try to ferment just about everything. :)
