After reading Cure Tooth Decay, I’ve been looking for raw cream with no success. I’ve talked to local farmers, made calls and spread the word about my need to buy Raw Milk Cream for Carlos and I. All this with no success.
I forgot the basic rule of thumb when it comes to traditional food: Just ask my Aunt.
Last week I spent a good deal of time talking with her in my visit to Ibarra. She’s a good talker and we ended up talking about raw cream
I asked: Do you know where can I get raw milk cream?
She said something like: Near the market, I go there everyday. It’s very fresh and I always buy from them.
(laughs, dances, jumps…I finally found a source of raw cream!!!)
Next day she bought the cream for me. It was very cheap, like US$4 per liter.
I’ve never seen a cream like this. It’s very thick and it tastes great, but most important, it makes me feel good and healthy when I eat it.
I brought the jar in my backpack to Quito and I’ve already consumed half of it. I need to plan another trip to the North soon!
