My farmer friend's Jersey cow had her darling little baby yesterday. So I thought it would be fun to play with colostrum. I've never tried it. So I did. Not delicious. But not bad either. I've read about Beestings Pudding so thought I'd try that too. But didn't seem to work for me.
First recipe I found on this forum called for some milk, double that amt colostrum and some sugar (I added vanilla). Heat in double boiler until thick. But it never really got thick. I saw other recipies that called for colostrum only and some that heated it in the oven. Tried that too. Never really seemed to get thick but started to get bubbly. I'm letting then all cool to see what will happen. So far they are all pretty liquid. Anyone else ever try this?
And how do you strain this stuff?! It is so thick. Will hardly go through a filter. What causes it (the pudding) to thicken? Albumin? I think that is a big molecule. Could I have filtered it out?
