insanity by way of milk and sugar
March 14, 2011
So on Sunday I decided to make dulce de leche from scratch. None of that sweetened condensed milk for me. Oh no… just whole milk, sugar, vanilla beans and baking soda.
Why yes I am insane, why do you ask?
It took FOREVER. I must have spent at least 4 hours waiting for the milk to evaporate. And in the end I let it go too far and it burned a bit…. but just to that point where the whole apartment smelled like toasted marshmallows. And Rosie came over and sampled it so that I knew that it was alright.
Oh and I learned something new today. I learned that even if you have a ton of sugar burned to the bottom of a pan just toss some baking soda in the pan, cover it in water and boil it until all the cooked on gunk comes up. No scrubbing required.
It’s magic I tell you magic.
