Raw Milk “New Cheese” Best Ever!


Found a great raw milk at Santa Cruz framer’s market,  Claravale Farm pure Jersey milk from Paicines CA.  Perfect for making New Cheese, check below for my YouTube video.  The high fat Jersey whole milk made creamy rich luxurious sweet cheese and whey.  Great plus is that the cheese can be used right away.  We enjoyed home-made Chile Relleons, on the same night I made the cheese.  (Click on the second picture to see the original post for my Chile Relleons recipe.)   The next day the cheese was over the top fabulous on home-made pizza!
