cafeaulait

Café au Lait

The ratio of coffee to milk is 1 to 1. There is no foam.

Brew strong, Silver Canyon medium or dark coffee. Scald milk by pouring a minimum of a half cup of milk into a heavy-bottomed sauce pan and heat on low until bubbles start to form on the edges of the milk. Do not boil. Pour the milk to fill half the coffee cup and top with an equal part of the fresh brewed coffee. Stir and enjoy.

condensedmilk

Healthier Homemade Condensed Milk

Want a healthier, gluten-free version of Condensed Milk? Or don’t have a can in your pantry? Condensed Milk is easy to make, and you can eliminate the food additives, thickeners, soy, stabilizers, and “natural and artificial flavors” that come in most of the canned versions.

You can also reduce the sugar a little, to your taste. For the Key Lime Pie, we recommend reducing the sugar in the Condensed Milk. It will save, in your refrigerator, for up to two to four weeks.

  • 3 cups Longmont Dairy whole milk
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (or substitute 1 cup honey)
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt

Place all ingredients in a heavy pan or double boiler and stir to mix. Heat to a simmer. As curds accumulate on the top, skim off and discard. Simmer until the liquid is reduced by more than half the volume and has begun to thicken. Depending on elevation this should take between 60 and 75 minutes. Skim off curds and transfer to a heat-safe storage container. When cool, cover and store in refrigerator.
