• The Art of Warmed Milk | A Recipe

    On restless nights, fraught with tossing and turning, I often find contentment in a warmed mug of all natural whole milk. Many people find the ritual of drinking a warm glass of milk a calming practice. Milk contains the amino acid, tryptophan, which helps to induce slumber. Pair with a beloved book or other quieted focus.

    [ RECIPE ]

    Ingredients | 2 cups all natural, locally sourced organic whole milk, organic cinnamon 

    1. For a smokey, sweet flavour, heat 2 tablespoons of all natural, organic whole milk (from your local dairy farmer, or an all natural non GMO whole milk from your nearest grocer) in a medium heirloom copper saucepan over medium heat until shimmering.
    2. Slowly stir in 1½ cups organic whole milk, stirring occasionally until simmering 1 minute. During this minute, take a moment for yourself to reflect on your work. What would you do differently next time?
    3. Add remaining milk and continue to simmer until the desired reduction is achieved. Pour into your favourite handcrafted stoneware or ceramic mug bearing the initials of its maker.
    4. If desired, sprinkle with fresh, hand-grated organically grown Sri Lankan cinnamon.
    5. Pair with a beloved book, like The Kinfolk Home, or other quieted focus.
    6. Sip in bed by candlelight*, from a handcrafted, all natural soy or beeswax candle, while nestled in freshly pressed organic white cotton bed linens.
