They LOVE sugar !
I have a super sweet tooth...the more concentrated sugar the better...pavlova, candyfloss, sugary fudge...bring it on! LOL
However, even for me, it is sometimes too much here...
Drinks, juices...I have to dilute with soda water....cakes & biscuits are so sweet they lose all taste apart from SWEET....
(paradoxically, things that are supposed to be sweet, like fruit, are always accompanied by a small bag of salt & chili powder...weird eh?)
Anyway....tonight I have been introduced to something so moreish, I will have to practise extreme control over myself (this will be a mission...LOL)
I was sitting outside the Guesthouse, catching the evening breeze, & watching the world go by, when I noticed Poppa Guesthouse pouring condensed milk into a bowl...he then comes outside & hails down the roving bread seller...purchasing a hot, crusty, freshly baked loaf ...
( you have to taste this bread to believe it...these guys buy bread straight out of the oven, put it in a big basket, covered with a sack, on the back of their pushbikes, then pedal around the alleys...they are sold out in minutes, & have to return for more...no preservatives, always fresh...YUM)
He settles down beside me, then proceeds to rip pieces off the bread & dip them into the condensed milk !
I was thinking "Oh no, he didnt...YUK!"
He offers me the bread, motioning at the bowl....but I refused gracefully....but no...he was determined...he wanted me to try it..
Oh bugger! Not wanting to be impolite, I pinched off a walnut sized piece, & dipped it in the bowl....
OMG OMG OMG!
I'm sure my eyes popped open to owl size!
It was so frigging DELICIOUS!!!!!
Suffice to say, we needed to hail down the bread seller, on his next round...LMAO
Trust me...try it !
But make sure that your breadroll/baguette is as fresh & crusty as possible...preferably hot...I think that is the key...lol
