How to Make Homemade Half & Half
I'm pretty simple in my coffee requests, about 3/4 coffee and 1/4 milk. I love the flavors but I have been too lazy and frugal to buy it. I will treat myself to some homemade whipped cream on Saturday mornings when I make waffles. As I was doing some research, I was noticing how easy it would be to add a little extra of something to the cup and make every morning a treat!
Most recipes you will find on the Internet include, sweetened condensed milk (which I will be replacing during my baking series) and then some version of milk, half & half, or cream.
I always have milk on hand, most times have heavy whipping cream, but never have half & half. I saw version of 1 part milk to 1 part heavy cream as well as 4 parts milk to1 part heavy cream.
