Milk: Milk from the bosk is a staple of life for the Tribes of the Wagon Peoples. In some areas, it is available in powdered form. Sand kaiila milk is used by the peoples of the Tahari as verr milk is used elsewhere, it is reddish with a salty, strong taste due to the content of ferrous sulfate. Verr milk is sometimes sold in open markets from a brass container carried on a strap and served in tiny brass cups.
