Leche Asada - Peruvian Milk Custard

#4. Leche Asada – Peruvian Milk Custard

The world of children is magical. When mom made Leche Asada (Roasted Milk), I naively thought she just burned plain milk in a pot. But the preparation is far more complex.

Mom stirred milk, eggs and vanilla extract in a pot. Afterward, she roasted the mix in the oven from 30 to 45 minutes. I loved Roasted Milk and was always impatient to eat it. The usual outcome was eating Roasted Milk with a roasted tongue.
