The Good and The Bad of The Dulche de Leche
After the other weeks Eating Around the World – Argentina post, I have been left with a huge box of dulche de leche. It’s delicious, but we have quite a lot of it. So I did a few experimental recipes to try and use it up. Some worked and some absolutely didn’t!!
First of all we simply put a spoonful on top of greek yoghurt and peaches, yum, thumbs up for this one.
Secondly Derby grandma and grandad had given us lots of apples from their garden. I thought i’d try making an apple tarte tatin, instead of making the sugar caramel, I tried using dulche de leche. Looks good when being assembled.
Then look at it….mmm. The Cyclist thought it was some sort of savoury tart topped with sun dried tomatoes.
It tasted good though. I boiled the dulche de leche in the pan with the apples to start, so wondered if I just assembled the whole thing and put it straight into the oven, it might not solidify into a soft toffee. I had some leftover puff pastry so had a go at some mini ones, looking good right??
Thirdly I thought I’d make some vanilla ice cream and stir in the remainder of the dulche de leche.
