Raw Milk for the School Kids in Russia… (OMG)

While sipping that wonderful cup of coffee (chicory), once again I was doing some thinking’s. Today it was about raw milk in Russia…

The example I am going to give you is why I really love Russia and hope it never changes. This is where the old, “I am freer than you!” saying I have now comes into play…

The raw milk truck that we buy raw milk from was out of milk today. That is good except, it was early in the day so they should not have been out. But due to the local school needing milk for the kids all the milk was sold at one time to the school… (OMG – did you just say the school and raw milk?)

Of course, not having my favorite milk makes me grumble and rumble, but then a story came to my mind. Yes I did just say raw milk and school for children in the same breath. Now that is a story that people in the USA need to read. Because all of the horror stories about raw milk coming from America is really embarrassing when you travel the world and buy raw milk just about anywhere that it is plentiful. No government regulations to cause issues…

So here I am writing about a school around Moscow and the children are going to drink milk from a milk truck located on the corner of the street. Now they may have rules pertaining to the treatment of said milk and maybe like many Russians they may boil the milk or something (baked milk is common). But the point is that they, the school is responsible to take care of the situation and that is just the way it should be everywhere. We as individuals need to have enough sense to handle food properly and take on the responsibility to preform such actions with out government influence in any form…

But! You yell at me: What if they do not do their job correctly and food poison all these innocent kids?

Okay – please quit yelling and think about this: I have been in food service most of my civilian career. I have never seen any proof that government/corporate regulated food products are any safer than individual bought and sold raw food products. Human error and stupidity are the driving factors of all food related illnesses that we encounter. Be they part of a huge corporation or a lone farmer on his farm…

Try this link: List of Foodborne Illnesses. You might want to see how large most of these incidents are and realize that bigger means bigger issues in most cases…

I remember as a little tyke, that I was taught to shake the jug of milk to mix the cream into the rest of the milk. I still shake my cartoons of milk when I buy it that way. I also take great pleasure in looking at the separated cream on the top of the raw milk that we buy…

Shake it up and pour a wonderful glass of ice cold raw milk… 🙂

PS: I did get my kilo of delicious raw cottage cheese though – Yummy…

PSS: And how did the human race survive all these many years when milk went straight from the cow to the pitcher on the table?  Oh My!
