Irish Moss Pudding Recipe
2 hours 30 minutes
1 C Irish Moss Flakes
2 Qts Whole Milk (or milk of choice)
1/2 C Sugar
Flavor...any flavor that tickles you!
Wash the flakes several times with cold water in a sieve to remove any rocks or other impurities.
Allow the flakes to soak in a bowl of cold water for 1/2 an hour.
Wrap the flakes in cheese clothe and tie it closed.
Pour the milk into the top part of a double boiler and add the wrapped-up flakes.
Bring the milk to a gentle boil, then simmer the mixture for a 1/2 hour, stirring occasionally and pushing the bundle of flakes against the edge of the pot to squeeze out the carrageenan.
Remove the Irish Moss and stir in your flavoring of choice. We recommend vanilla, cocoa powder, lemon zest, ginger, or really any flavor you enjoy.
Pour the mixture into separate dessert cups and allow to cool for at least an hour in the refrigerator.
Top with fresh fruit, chocolate or fruit sauce, maple syrup, whipped cream, or lemon zest, the sky is the limit! Enjoy!
