Milk of the camel

Leave a comment

We bought our camel milk home from the desert and left it in the fridge overnight. We didn’t drink it raw just in case… particularly as the next day was Christmas Day and we were going out to eat.

I first boiled the milk, then let it cool… once it had cooled, I poured into a plastic bottle to go back into the fridge.

Preparing the milk

I know you are wondering what is it like… the answer it that it tastes like creamy milk, richer than standard full fat cows milk and slightly like the flavour of powdered milk.

Would I have it again? Probably not although reading round the topic there is apparently some scientific evidence that it may help prevent diabetes.
