Dulce De Leche
Dulce de Leche is a traditional Argentinian "milk preserve" with a silky texture and flavour similar to fudge or caramel.
Dulce de Leche is delicious with pancakes, waffles, meringues, cakes, pastries, fruit and ice-cream, spread on toast or simply straight from the jar with a teaspoon. Dulce de Leche is also the original and best filling for banoffee pie, far superior to a boiled tin of condensed milk!
Folklore has it Dulce de Leche was created in 1829 when Argentine general Manuel de Rosas' cook was distracted and left the soldiers' "lechada" or sweetened milk on the boil too long. We handmake our Dulce De Leche in small batches here in Cambridgeshire using Fresh Milk, Fresh Cream, Cane Sugar, Vanilla Extract and Bicarbonate of Soda. We do not use cornflour to thicken the mixture or glucose to make it more glossy.
