Tried these two over the weekend:
1. Kroger Instant non-fat Dry Milk: Did not dissolve well; lumpy; white color w/ some crunchy topping; very light slight milky nose; soft rather bland/milky bit grainy/gritty flavor; very long rather milky some chalky/gritty bit watery simple/bland finish; pleasant enough but badly needs butterfat; no earthly reason to use this product.
2. Saubota Camel Milk Natural Dry Milk Powder (One Belt/One Road; www.Saumal.Kz; German Technology; 100% natural; ZollmannStutenmilch GmbH) Eurasia Invest/Karaganda/Kazakhstan: Dissolves readily; white slightly gray color; light milky/earthy nose; light bit tart milky bit earthy/gamey/sauvage bit complex flavor; med.long light milky/earthy/gamey rather watery finish; could not tell that this came from a camel or different animal; slightly more coarse/gamey/sauvage character; needs butterfat; no earthly reason to use this product.
A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. In the CortiBros Fall newsletter; Darrell offered up both dehydrated camel & mare's milk from Kazakhstan. First time this product has been imported into the USofA. And of course it would be CortiBros. How could I possibly resist? So I ordered the camel's milk. And thought I should compare it to cow's milk from the good ole USofA.
Neither of these hold a candle to real milk w/ butter fat; both were rather thin/watery and badly needed butterfat; the camel's milk was distinctly more interesting and lacked the high-toned character of the cow's milk. But I cannot think of any earthly reason one would want to use either of these products. I tried adding a bit of cream...but that could not salvage these two milks. A rare clunker from CortiBros. Totally unable to pick up any Kazakhstan terroir.

Here I take a quick peak in for a moment and find you've been drinking, not just milk, but .... powdered camel milk? Sounds like you had more than a knee replacement, Tom! crazy
