In an earlier post, we tackled homemade cow milk butter. Today we will be looking at how to make goat milk butter. Just like cow milk butter, you can use this butter for cooking, baking etc.

Did you know that goat butter is always pure white color in color? This is because unlike cows, goats absorb the carotene contained in the grass they eat.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • fresh goat milk
  • cream separator
  • collection bowls
  • glass jars
  • cold water
  • wooden butter paddles
  • cutting board
  • salt to taste
  • forks (optional)

The process of making goat milk butter is very similar to the cow milk one. The only major difference is that goat milk is naturally homogenized which makes it difficult for the cream to seperate from the milk. This is when the cream separator becomes handy.

3 gallons of fresh goat milk, will produce slightly more than half a gallon of cream which can then be shaken to make butter. The buttermilk left over, can be consumed too.

The trick to goat milk butter that stays fresh longer, is washing out as much buttermilk as possible using cold water. Cold water also firms up your butter. Don’t forget to salt to taste. 🙂
