    Default Canning goat's milk?

    Can I put my goat's milk in jars and pressure can it?

    If so, are there specific directions or links?

    We FINALLY have a sweet dairy doe, but now we are all accustomed to not drinking milk.

    We just cook with it, mainly, and use it a bit on cereal (which almost never crosses the threshold).

    I make sour cream and will be making cheese and such, but I also have several does due, and am anticipating a milk overrun.

    i don't know about canning it, but you could make kefir, and THAT can be used to make a TON of stuff

    Wink Once hubby is up I'll go get my goat cookbook for ya ...

    When I was milking 24x2 everyday I had surplus milk in two spare refers, plus made cheese and all the rest.
    I did can mine at one point. It changed the flavor ALITTLE but not enough to bother any of my crew.
    I canned mine only in pint jars. Ended up using nearly all of it when a foal lost it's dam and I only had one goat fresh at the time. It worked fine for that baby and I have just never gotten back to that part of the canning the milk.
    I have four freezers so I just freeze it all now.
