Hereís my special recipe for...Confiture Du Lait
From the one and only... Catriona Scott
On tour with... The Midden
From... Fife and Alford, on Scotlandís East Coast

This recipe should come with a warning...Only for the Sweet-toothed!The girls learnt how to make it in France, but travel the world to South and Central America and you will find it there under the name of Dulce de leche. Not only is it a great jam, but try it as a sauce ....its got that caramel taste that blended so well with bananas, icecream and cream..indulge!

This is what you need...
litre of milk
500g jam sugar
25 cl water
800g sugar
200g creme fraiche
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Some empty jamjars and lids that have been washed in a dishwasher or with very hot water and detergent or sterilising tablet, rinsed and allowed to air dry.

This is how you do it...

Heat milk, in a pan till almost simmering. It is important not to let it boil.
Add the 800g sugar and water, stir well.
Cook on a very low heat till caramelised, then leave to lighten, stirring occasionally.
Put in the 500g jam sugar and cinnamon, stir well.
Leave to cook very slowly on low heat for around one hour, stirring regularly. once the milk has reduced and thickened to a jam like consistency remove from heat. You can rest the jam by dropping a little from a spoon on to a cold surface and then checking its consistency.
Leave to cool, then stir in creme fraiche.

Serve this with...crepes!! Yummy!

Wash it down with.. fresh cranberry and raspberry juice.

Turn on the cool sounds of... karenís first recording, aged four and a half, in her living room, Balnullo.

I love this recipe because... we lived on it when we worked in France as -Les belles Poubelles-ie: Bin- girls!

I learned to cook this... we were in France, educating the French about Scotís music while they introduced us to their cuisine.

We now have eaten it again in LíOrient -Festival Interceltique- summer 2002.

The person I would love to invite to dinner would be... Robert Burns for after dinner entertainment!

A song with lyrics about food is... The Jeely Piece Song by The Singing Kettle.
