When The Recipe ReDux introduced this present recipe contest for our individuals: “Festively Lactose Unfastened” (subsidized through the Southeast Dairy Affiliation), I knew precisely which recipe I used to be going to make: Snow Pudding.
The problem was once to make a vacation favourite the usage of lactose-free milk. I used to be offered to Snow Pudding quickly when I began relationship my long term husband. For each and every vacation or almost about each and every celebratory get-together (there are A LOT of those when you’re one in every of 11 kids and feature 16 nieces & nephews), there may be Snow Pudding at the dessert desk. Mimi (Jim’s grandmother) was once the originator of the recipe (rumor has it that she tailored it from a cookbook won as a marriage reward in 1930.)
It takes somewhat time to make however the ultimate effort is scrumptious and beautiful, too. The 2 portions of the recipe are a fundamental vanilla custard and lemon flavored “snow” topping which is composed of egg whites, gelatin, sugar and lemon juice. After all, the custard is milk primarily based, so for this model, I used 1% lowfat lactose-free milk and it labored fantastically. Lactose-free milk is in reality actual dairy milk – the enzyme lactase is added to damage down the herbal milk sugar, lactose. In consequence, it tastes quite sweeter than common milk however nonetheless gives the similar 9 very important vitamins.
As we host Christmas once a year to about 30 other people, I’ll sit up for making this model of Snow Pudding, particularly since my mother – who has lactose intolerance – will now be capable to see what everybody’s been raving about over time.
You’ll be able to serve the snow pudding already crowned with “snow” or do as Jim’s circle of relatives does, serve the “snow” in a big pitcher and everybody can dollop as little or up to you favor. You continue to make have leftover “snow” which is similarly as tasty on best of pie or cake.
Have you ever ever cooked with lactose-free milk?
