Did you know the “Walford Cow” of Newfoundland produces milk that tastes like spiced apple cider? Named after Sir Graham Walford, a Scotch-English dairy farmer who settled in the region in the 1760s, the heifers are famous for their copper-colored, sweet-tasting milk.

But take care: A fermented version of this milk contains dangerous levels of alcohol. It is so flammable that even direct sunlight can cause the liquid to combust.
