No milk
« on: August 07, 2021, 07:23:04 PM »

This week thereís no milk at all in The Island. "No lorry drivers" chaos affected the Co-op, same for Tescoís, who deliver from Inverness. A local cafe shut its doors today, canít make hot drinks. Black coffee or lemon tea anyone?

I guess that there has also been a surge in demand for coffee whitener or powdered milk . . .  :-\

If really desperate, purchase cans of ready-to-serve rice pudding and filter the contents, thus separating the solid rice from the fluid.

I'd love to find a substitute I can tolerate, every one I've tried tastes horrible.  I'd basically have to give up Coffee without milk and only have fruit/herbal teas and flavoured iced tea.

Not that standardised milk is great either, I moved onto unhomogenised milk many years ago and it seemed to dramatically slow how quickly I was putting on weight (despite being higher fat content as it was only available in Jersey milk from Grahams back then), didn't make me feel sick and tastes how I remember it from school before they "standardised" homogenisation of milk.

There are plenty of goats on the mainland and we have plenty of cows here. Good tip about the rice pudding.

Cans of evaporated milk and condensed milk are another two options. (Assuming the "local locusts" haven't emptied the shelves.)

There's always Tibetan tea using butter instead of milk.
Ideally it should be Yak butter.
It's not something I'm keen to try.

Black goats can be seen every day right by the main road at Shiel Bridge near Cinn t-Sŗile on the mainland. There are bins by the road that attract them. I havenít tried going up to one so Iím not sure how tame they are, but they came down from the hills where they range over a huge area I believe, from the evidence of place names such as ņirdí Ghobhar.

Thereís no way Iím up for milking one, and Iíve never milked a cow (my father had milking machines for that job) although I think my mother did when she was young. Janetís hands are no good - arthritis - and she has no more experience than me.

Canít milk our donkeys as they are males.

The donkeys might object if you tried. :)
