Is it illegal to drink raw milk?
However, at the federal level, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) bans the interstate sale or distribution of raw milk. All milk sold across state lines must be pasteurized and meet the standards of the US Pasteurized Milk Ordinance. Drinking or otherwise consuming raw milk is legal in all 50 states.
Why raw milk is bad?
Raw milk is milk from cows, sheep, or goats that has not been pasteurized to kill harmful bacteria. This raw, unpasteurized milk can carry dangerous bacteria such as Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria, which are responsible for causing numerous foodborne illnesses.
Can you make cream out of milk?
To make 1 cup of heavy cream, mix 2/3 cup of whole milk with 1/3 cup melted butter. Really, it is that simple. As an alternative, if you don’t have milk on hand, you can also use 1/6 cup butter and 7/8 cup half-and-half. The cornstarch helps to thicken up the skim milk, but you skip all that added fat.
