Perfect for bed time :Dutch Anisseed milk recipe/ Anijsmelk recept


Just recently I have been missing food from home a lot. I am half Dutch.In the Netherlands you would just buy the mix to make this.It comes in the form of a cube a bit like a sugar cube.
However without access to dutch shops.And Believe me I tried! I had to make my own.
As It turns out it's very simple!



Ingredients:

1,5 tablespoons of Star Anise

500 ml Milk

Sweetener or Sugar



Put the milk and the Star Anise in A large pan and simmer for 15 minutes to an hour.
When done scoop out the Star Anise with a slotted spoon.
There will probably also be a skin on the milk so scoop this out too.
Sweeten using sugar or sweetener. I use 2 sweeteners but you should just sweeten to taste.
This makes a very large mug full but if you want more or less just adjust the recipe. It's roughly 3 tablespoons of Star Anise to every litre of milk.
You could put the Star Anise in a bit of muslin if you don't want to have to scoop it out after.
If you want it to be a bit thicker you can thicken it with a little cornflour but I don't think it's necessary.

Lovely to drink before bed!
