After a week of goat-sitting and still getting two gallons of raw cow milk per week from a local, grass-fed dairy, it's probably unnecessary to state the fact that two-thirds of our fridge is filled with milk. Let's see... what can be made using a lot of milk besides the quart-and-a-half of daily kefir used? Pudding. Butterscotch pudding, to be exact. This is a big recipe, and although we eat it right up in a day's time *burp* any leftovers make great popsicles. If it's just too much for you, try half a recipe.
1 1/2 cup rapadura or sucanat
1/3 cup arrowroot powder (if making half a recipe, use 3 Tbs.)
6 cups milk
2 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
- In a saucepan, stir together rapadura & arrowroot powder. Stir in milk. Cook over medium heat until thick & bubbly, then cook 2 minutes longer. Remove from heat.
- Stir in butter & vanilla until butter is fully melted. Serve warm with a splash of cold milk, or chilled. A dollop of whipped cream on top is also yummy. Pudding will thicken up after chilling. It doesn't usually last long enough here for it to reach the chilled phase, though.
