We heard about a new kind of custard the other day. It's called a posset, made from just cream, sugar, and whatever flavorings you might like. And it turns out that it's not at all new! In fact, it's one of the oldest versions of custard around. New or old, this sounds like the perfect dessert for us.
Now here's an interesting tip! Do you know dulce de leche? It's a creamy, golden and gooey sweet topping made of milk and sugar boiled down. We like to make it from scratch, but lots of people make it with sweetened condensed milk, boiled in a pan. Taylor, a food blogger, says he has discovered an even easier way.
Infusing flavor into cream or whole milk is one of the easiest ways to get a little extra flavor into a cake, custard, or any other dessert that uses even a little dairy. Want a note of cinnamon in your cupcakes? Or lavender in your crème brûlée? Here's how!
Every so often, we come across a recipe that asks us to scald the milk before adding it to whatever custard or bread recipe we happen to be making. This always seems like an annoying extra step without an obvious function in the recipe, so we started wondering: is it really necessary?
Do you know where your milk comes from? Whether you're trying to eat local or just curious about the origin of your milk, yogurt, or cottage cheese, the site Where Is My Milk From? will help you identify the city, state, and dairy where it was processed.
We love a bit of creamy foam topping our morning coffee, but haven't really wanted to invest the funds or the counterspace in an actual milk steamer. Here's how we get around it with just a jar and a microwave!
Here's a really old-fashioned breakfast we have been savoring this week: slightly dry biscuits, warmed up, doused in milk with a sprinkle of sugar. It's warm, comforting, nursery-style food for cold mornings. Have you ever tried this?
It's happened to all of us at least once. We're heating milk for a sauce, or oatmeal, or any number of things, but there are just a few bubbles around the edge. We turn away for just a minute to do something else, and the next thing we know, there's steamy, sputtering milk cascading over our stove top. What gives?!
If you've ever had the privilege of driving to Branson, Missouri there's a good chance you've driven past Osceola Cheese. There's billboards for miles and miles around and planning to visit is at the top of most people's to do list! Take a peek inside and see what all the fuss is about.
