T stands for Try It

More Spanish tales..seriously my life is one long holiday!
One of our day trips was to the fabulous and ancient city of Ronda.  Very high in the mountains. So high in fact that as soon as we parked, we were light headed and needed elevenses. We had Cafe Cortado and Fried Milk.
Leche Fritata con Fresas. I was surprised by the sweet and sticky strawberries, not the fried milk!
I don't have it often, but it is on most of the menus that I see in Spain, and I feel the need to be local wherever I am. Ahem. It's condensed milk, probably set with gelatine and then literally lightly fried to warm it through. So it's sweet. Oh boy. Just the job for sightseeing at high altitude!  
Linking again at Elizabeth and Bleubeard's T for Tuesday spot.

Woah.. fried milk... sounds truly weird but it looks pretty good on the plate so who am I to judge without trying it first? Wonder if it turns out sort of creme caramel-ish?

Annie said...

That looks yummy....not that this diabetic would dare to try it lol

I love fried milk, and sometimes I make it, but it is not as traditional down here by the coast. Usually it is ´proper custard´made with milk, eggs and cornflour, thick enough to stand alone, and then cut up and fried, and smothered with sugar. Not very healthy but yummy all the same. Kate x

Reminds me a bit like flan, but flan is baked with a ton of eggs, condensed milk, and a caramelized sugar bottom. Never had it fried, but I'm sure I might like it. BTW, I've never used gelatin or cornflour as Kate does.

Thanks for sharing fried milk and strawberries with us for T this Tuesday.

Sounds scrummy. Makes me wonder how they found out fried milk would work:)

Hope you have a nice day. Sue

Hello and Happy T Day! How yummy this looks, wish I had some right now. Thanks for sharing and have a good week.

I suppose it is a bit like custard. Interesting although it looks nice.

Hettie said...

Not sure it would be my cup of tea but like you, I would have to try it. I believe we should all try something once so we can have a real opinion about something. I do get annoyed with people who judge something without even trying it!
Happy T Day and thanks for your kind comment.

I've never had anything like it but eating and trying local foods can be very refreshing. The high altitude would do a number on me that's for sure-but you handled it quite well. Happy t day!

Here in California the "new" thing is fired everything, Twinkies, pickles, Ding Dongs, avocados.....you name it....BUT NO FRIED MILK.....LOL

I agree with Elizabeth, sounds a little like Flan, and Mexican dish, but not real sweet.

Thanks for sharing
Happy T-day
