Freshly Squeezed Camel Milk

This is Hussan, a camel herder from Sudan who lives in Saudi Arabia. He has just milked a camel for us. He will pour the fresh warm milk into a plastic bag for us to take away. A few posts ago, I wrote about the superior health qualities of camel’s milk versus cow’s milk. I also recently featured a story about Hussan and his life on my other blog, Susie’s Big Adventure – take a look!

    Interesting! An acquired taste? I’d try it at least once! How about Camel cheese?!

      Camel milk is wonderdul. If you have any diesease in your gut, it will clean it out. It tastes thin like fat free cow milk. The first taste will feel a slight salty, but ever sip after that lacks the first hint of salt. We love it! Unpastuarized is the best. The high heat kills the nutrition and taste.

      • Really? You drink it unpasteurized? My hubby always boils the hell out of it. I don’t drink it much, but he uses it for coffee or desserts or other recipes.

    Wonderful photo of what is probably a rather common scene there. Lots of white in the snapshot but quite different from the blizzard whiteout outside my window. The whole region has shut down today.

    Great snap. We can see the strained milk coming through.
