One common and essential process when cooking is to boil milk. You’ll need to boil milk if you want to make homemade yogurt, mac and cheese, and many other dishes. You’d think that it would be easy to boil milk.
While it’s true that there aren’t very many steps to the process, it’s sometimes tricky to bring the milk to a boil without burning it.
The trick to a perfect boil is to make sure you have a thick pan that heats slowly, but retains heat well. It’s also important that the milk boils slowly by simmering on a low heat setting, rather than being scorched by a high heat setting. A spouted milk pan may help you pour the milk evenly.
As long as you’re patient and use the correct saucepan, there shouldn’t be a problem. Keep in mind that you’ll need to stir the milk occasionally to ensure the heat is distributed evenly.
