The kindness of people I have met via the internet just amazes me.
Our 2017 Christmas present from Copperwitch arrived today. Let us blame Australia Post for the late delivery. It is a practical gift of two jugs suitable for mixing and keeping milk in the fridge, and I know our current milk jugs will break, and they will kick into use.
Yes, we use skim milk powder to make milk, as we were advised to by our neighbour, the sister of artist Albert Tucker, some 35 years ago to forgo fatty milk for health reasons. I now know a lot more and I don't think I would do that now, but we are so used to skim milk that normal milk seems like drinking fatty cream. Little Jo, picking up from one of her mothers, says we drink watery milk. We always have homogenised full cream milk in the house for unexpected visitors, normal milk if we know they are coming, and long life soy milk for Mother.
No Grace, it does not have added sugar, but the sugar content is about 3% higher than in normal milk because of the concentration of the milk in processing. Thank you for mentioning it, which sent me off to search.
Thank you dear Copperwitch, but stop trying to ingratiate yourself with R. He has his hands full with my family and his volunteer work (and he would add me). You are not stealing him, although at the moment I would willing hand him over had he not cooked a lovely piece of roast lamb tonight.
