Yesterday I pasteurized the milk on top of the stove. I was in a hurry. Vince was in a hurry. He got new milk kefir grains and wanted to get that started so the quickest way to pasteurize some of the milk we got yesterday was to do it on the stove.
I poured the milk into a container to go into the ice water bath to chill the milk quickly and noticed the heart in the bottom of the pot I had used to heat the milk.
That made me smile!
In the end, Vince decided he’d rather use storebought milk to get the kefir grains started so he went out and bought milk but at least I got one gallon of raw milk pasteurized. The other gallon will go to yogurt and maybe (a big MAYBE) one batch of ice cream later this week. I’m anxious to see if eating a small bowl once a week causes problems.
