Hen’s Milk

Latte di gallina

This recipe is typical of the countryside around Piacenza. It was prepared with fresh milk and eggs from home-bred hens. Adults drank it when they were cold, in the evening, before going to sleep.

Ingredients: 4 egg yolks, 8 spoonfuls of sugar, 1 liter of milk, 1 glass of cognac or rum, 1 stick of vanilla.

Preparation: boil the milk with the vanilla, and in the meantime, beat the egg yolks with the sugar, until the mixture is foamy. Little by little add the hot milk, flavored with cognac or rum, being careful to mix it very slowly. Serve it hot in appropriate glasses or coffee cups.
