Camel's Milk

Author Notes: Camel's milk has a very strong taste, much more so than cow's or goat's milk. It also must be consumed very slowly for it to be digestible. Once prepared, it should be served cold after hours of refrigeration, or warmed, as in the following recipe from our book "Cooking with the Bible: Recipes for Biblical Meals."Anthony Chiffolo

Serves: 8-12


  • 6 cups fresh camel's milk
  • 1 teaspoon saffron
  • 2-3 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
