Dulce de Leche / Mliječna karamela

Got some extra fresh milk lying around the house that you don’t know what to do with? Make Dulce de Leche – a delicious milk caramel! The cooking time is a bit lengthy, but super simple and requires just three ingredients. So if you’re already hanging around the kitchen because of something else, whip up this tasty treat too.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields around ½ cup / 0.68 EUR)

2 cups milk (0.40 EUR)

4 tbsp vanilla sugar (0.27 EUR)

METHOD:

Whisk up all of the ingredients in a wide pot and bring to a boil. As soon as it starts boiling, reduce heat and simmer, while stirring as necessary, until thickened to desired consistency. In the beginning you’ll only need to give it a stir just now and then. However, as the mixture starts thickening, stirring should be more frequent so your caramel doesn’t burn. The expected cooking time can vary between one and a half to two hours, depending on how thick you want your caramel. Also, picking a wider pot should help with water evaporating more quickly.

Once the caramel reaches the desired thickness, transfer to a clean jar, cool to room temperature and then refrigerate for up to a couple of weeks. Please note that Dulce is gonna thicken more as it cools down. Serve with pancakes, ice cream, deserts or just shovel in your mouth straight from the jar.

Imate doma viška svežeg mlijeka sa kojim ne znate što bi? Napravite Dulche de Leche – savršenu mliječnu karamelu! Iako se kuha poduže, jako je jednostavno za napraviti i trebaju vam samo tri sastojka. Pa ako već radi nečeg drugog boravite u kuhinji, smutite usput i ovu ukusnu poslasticu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko ½ šalice / 5,01 kn)

2 šalice mlijeka (3,00 kn)

4 žlice vanili šećera (2,00 kn)

Prstohvat sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U širokom loncu pomiješaje sve sastojke i pustijte da zavriju pa odmah smanjite vatru. Krčkajte na laganoj vatri, uz miješanje po potrebi, dok se ne zgusne do željene konzistencije. Na početku ćete morati promiješati samo povremeno. Kako se bude zgušnjavalo, trebati ćete sve češće miješati da vam karamela ne zagori. Očekivano vrijeme kuhanja može varirati od jednog i pol do dva sata, a sve ovisno o tome koliko gustu karamelu želite. Također, širi će vam lonac ubrzati stvari jer će voda moći brže ispariti.

Kada karamela bude željene gustoće, preselite ju u čistu posudu i ostavite da se ohladi na sobnu temperaturu. Kasnije ju čuvajte u hladnjaku do nekoliko tjedana. Također, uzmite u obzir i to da će se karamela dodatno zgusnuti kako se bude hladila. Poslužite sa palačinkama, sladoledom, uz deserte ili jednostavno tamanite direktno iz tegle.
