Organic milk. It does a body … better? Who knows, but with all its claims of no antibiotics or artificial growth hormones, it really ought to. And when you’re paying $4 per half gallon, it really ought to taste delicious as well – or at least better than the kind we buy in a plastic jug for $2.39 a gallon. Amazingly enough, we discovered, all milk does not taste the same. We sampled four types of 2 percent organic milk, and the winner, Woodstock Farms, was smooth and creamy, without the sweet and sour tinges the others had. We don’t know about you, but milk is one of those things we just have to have in the refrigerator. As long as we have some, even if there’s nothing else to eat in the house, it doesn’t seem as if we’re out of food. It’s an essential element, really. Earth, wind, water, fire … milk. -- Katie Johnston Chase, Globe Staff Seven people participated in this taste test conducted at the Globe.
