Chongos Zamoranos- a Traditional Mexican Dessert

Chongos Zamoranos is a delicious dessert with a custard-like consistency.  When refrigeration was difficult and milk was fresh delivered or bought at the market instead of the supermarket, it would often spoil.  This recipe gives spoiled milk a use, so as not to waste it.  It's like up-cycling food!  Here is bisabuela's~ great-grandma's recipe.  Try it!  You just might like it!!

Sweet Deliciousness 


Leave milk to spoil for about two days.  You will see that the milk fat starts to separate.  When this separation begins and before there is a very distinct border to the separated parts, put the milk on the stove and bring to a boil with a stick of cinamon.  Add sugar to taste (about 1 cup per liter of milk).  Stir and move the mixture back and forth with a wooden spoon until it thikens and forms the Chongos- curds or clumps.  Let cool and serve.  For best results prepare this dish in a clay pot or earthenware casserole, but it will also turn out just fine if prepared in any pan.
¡Buen provecho!
