Desert ingenuity

Living in extreme climates requires thinking outside the box to solve problems that might not be considerations elsewhere. Fresh Milk should be cooled as quickly as possible to keep it fresh longer. Here in Arizona, that’s easier said than done in 110 degree heat when you have 6 goats to Milk. It just takes time, even with the best and most efficient equipment. I have tried different things over the years, but was never satisfied with the results. I think I finally figured out what works! Many of these little reusable ice rods can be put in my gallon milk jars before I head outside and will cool and keep my milk pretty cold until we come inside and transfer it all to the fridge. Bonus is there are no seams or lids to catch milk in, they rinse nice and clean, unlike frozen water bottles or other things I have tried. They take up less space in my jar and they’re easily santizable and durable. It takes somewhere between 7 and 10 per jar, so ive collected quiet a few of them. I just got the pretty multicolored ones today! #littlethingsbringmejoy #colorful #itsHOT #RAWmilk #onlythebest #VelociraptorRanch
