Last night I saw some little white pearles in the milk, but didn't think it was quite done yet. This morning it was. We left it covered.
Okay, well I must have done something wrong, because I strained mine yesterday and it smells TERRIBLE. I've never done it before but I just can't imagine it can be right. There's no way I can use it. I almost threw up when I was pouring it. My raw milk was fresh, not sour at all, but I guess I must have waited too long and let it sour too much? Because it smelled SO rancid. I am almost sick in my stomach at the thought of almost a half-gallon of wasted raw milk (and money!)! And I had planned to make ketchup and salsa today (my kids have been begging for ketchup to eat with their scrambled eggs all week!). I guess I need to get myself to the store and pick up some yogurt and just get the whey that way...
