Steamed Milk

milkIngredients:

  •  6 tablespoons honey
  • 1 quart milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 whole cloves
  • Freshly grated nutmeg

Directions:

  1. Place 1 tablespoon honey in each of six glasses; set aside. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, scald milk until small bubbles start to appear around the edges. Remove from heat, and add cinnamon and cloves. Cover and let steep 20 minutes. Return milk to high heat, and bring to a boil.
  2. Remove milk from heat, and using a teaspoon, remove and discard cloves. Transfer some of the hot milk to a blender, filling it halfway full. Cover blender, and place a kitchen towel over the lid to prevent hot liquid from splashing. Whip on high-speed until frothy, about 30 seconds. Pour into glasses, topping each with some foam; repeat with remaining hot milk.
  3. Stir milk to dissolve honey. Garnish with nutmeg, and serve
