On 1 June it is World Milk Day. There is very few dishes made with milk that comes close to this deliciously, creamy, perfect for winter comfort food dish, melkkos.
Melkkos also known as milk soup, but as Brownie Girl perfectly describes it: “Melksnysels is kind of like homemade pasta ribbons cooked in milk – commonly known as “slinger om die smoel” which speaks volumes – get a big bib and have a large serviette or a roll of kitchen paper handy to mop up with – this is one messy meal to eat”.
Ingredients to make Melkkos
We used cinnamon infused milk: Heat milk with Robertson’s cinnamon in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring once or twice, just until steaming. Cover pan, and let spices steep in milk for 1 hour. Strain, and reheat if necessary. Or refrigerate, covered, up to 3 days; reheat gently before using.
