Great Tip: Clean Burnt Milk Utensil in 10 minutes.
Warm milk is a traditional favorite bedtime beverage for children. Some adults, especially those with insomnia, find this a comforting night time drink as well.
Warm milk soothes tattered nerves, helping us descend into a restful slumber. I like to add a pinch of cinnamon to my warm milk to give it a spicy-sweet flavor. It is important to use low heat and stir the pot constantly while you are heating your milk. I like to use a whisk to prevent any clumps if a skin starts to form on the surface of the milk.
Milk forms a skin when it is heated because the proteins in the milk clump together. If you do not constantly stir the pot to prevent this from happening the skin with thicken, trapping in heat and causing your pot to boil over. The bottom of your pot will also get scorched if you are not careful to keep the heat low and keep stirring frequently.
