The Camel Milk I had is called Khoormog. It is produced by fermenting the camel milk. The khoormog has an alcoholic content of around 4%. It is considered a therapeutic drink, good for the digestive system amongst other things.
Whilst the Mongolians may feel that khoormog does not have a strong taste, the Australian certainly found the taste strong, and interesting.
My favourite Mongolian Family cooked lunch for me today. Meat, potatoes, the usual. There was, however, the addition of something special – warmed Camel’s Milk.
Perhaps we shall get some camel milk again – I’ll certainly drink it a second time.
