If you have never had the opportunity to try goats milk fudge you are really missing out. Something about the way the subtle goat flavors of the milk interact with the sweet, smooth flavors in fudge produces an absolutely delicious and amazing treat.
The ingredients in this goat milk peanut butter fudge could not be simpler: goat milk, sugar, peanut butter, butter and vanilla. Yet the result is spectacular. The fudge breaks apart at just the right consistency, both smooth and firm. Of course you could make any flavor fudge using goat milk, but peanut butter has always been our favorite, so that's why we are sharing it with you here today!
After the loss of Ida Nelson last summer, our first milking goat, Jon and I have been searching tirelessly for farms looking to re-home their healthy goats so that we can expand our flock. We were very blessed to adopt 4 new goats several weeks ago, one of which happens to be milking!
Every morning for breakfast we eat homemade bread with preserves left over from our summer farm stand inventory, fresh eggs plucked from the nesting boxes in the early morning and, now, once again, raw goats milk. The internet is full of people debating the merits of drinking raw milk, but we swear by it. Raw or not, goats milk is much healthier for you than any other type of milk you could drink.
So many of my readers (mostly on Facebook) laugh at the sometimes ridiculous names we give to our farm animals. I haven't elaborated on where they come from (mostly movies). Sometimes I even steal them from people I have crossed paths with that left a lasting impression on me.
We call our new milking goat Babs Johnson. She is such a sweetheart. She runs right onto the milking stand every day like it's been a ritual in her life since the day she was born. Her milk has had the largest amount of butterfat I have ever experienced working with dairy and the end result has been creamy fresh cheese, delicious milk and this peanut butter fudge that is to die for! That's Babs below, smiling at the thought of giving us such delicious cheese and fudge.
