This is an excellent site showing different stages of a normal kidding.
It tastes much the same as whole cow milk, but better. There are important differences in mineral and vitamin content and indigestibility. Kinder milk is the best tasting milk of all the goat breeds.
A study quoted by Dr. Barbellion of Paris at the International Congress of Medicine showed that “submitted to the action of digestive ferments, human milk and the milk of the goat were digested completely in TWENTY minutes, while the same process applied to cow milk showed only a slight advance after SIXTY minutes.”
This would make nice gifts.
1 large can (24 oz) of apple sauce, or 3 cups of peeled, chopped apples.
3 cups flour (all purpose)
1 cup corn oil
1 ½ cups chopped walnuts or hazelnuts, pecans, etc
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup raisins, currants, or chopped dates
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F.
Grease and flour 6 or 8 wide mouth PINT jars. Fill the jars about HALF full with cake batter. Bake at 325 for about 30 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out dry. Remove the jars from the oven ONE at a time, wipe the rim, then cap with simmered canning lid and secure the ring. Cool the jars on a towel until they “ping” and seal. Store on a dark, cool shelf.
