Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 1 cups


  • 3 1/4 cups full-fat milk


  • Add the milk to a heavy non-stick pan, set to medium, and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, bring to medium-low and let simmer gently, stirring every so often to prevent the milk from scorching at the bottom.
  • Simmer the milk until reduced by about half (1 1/2 cups), about 25 minutes. Strain the milk through a sieve to remove any skin and let cool completely.
