Dolche De Leche

It is really easy to make dolche de leche in a waterbath. Just put your can of sweetened condensed milk in the waterbath and set the temperature for 82 degrees. Wait 8 hours, let the can cool down. Thats it.

Egg Sous Vide

After reading about this beeing called the perfect egg, I just had to try it out for myself.
Temperature: 64.0
45 min

The 2 eggs got served with a piece if rye with butter, chives and salt.

The procedure is really simple. Take the raw egg and submerge in the waterbath, wait 45 minutes. That is it.
The yolk got really good, but the egg white did not meet my expectations at all. Overall I think this is not worth the effort. The old fashioned way of boiling the egg works much better for me.
