Great on its own straight out of the glass, or perfect as an ingredient, milk is a kitchen essential. What's even better about milk is that it can form the basis for a range of amazing recipes, from frothy drinks to frozen delights. One of our favorite uses for milk is as the main ingredient in the New Orleans-inspired Cane Syrup Milk Punch. For something Southern and sensational, you can't beat a glass of Strawberry Milk, packed with fresh strawberries, sugar, and ice-cold milk. Milk is also the unexpected ingredient in making amazing grits.
According to our Test Kitchen, hold the half-and-half and make a water-and-milk mixture instead. Your grits, and your taste buds, will appreciate it. Milk also makes macaroni and cheese a delight. Whisk it in to our Classic Baked Macaroni and Cheese where you'll appreciate the richness it adds. You'll be grabbing the milk carton while you're making your Cornmeal Gravy as well. However you pour it, milk adds in distinctive flavors and textures to a range of great recipes. Savor it and let it be a welcome addition to your kitchen.
