I was cruising around the internet a couple of months ago and I read about something called Dulce de Leche in a jar. I don’t remember where I saw it or even what the recipe was, but I stored it away in the back of my mind and then didn’t remember it until I saw a jar of it in one of my favorite stores, World Market. I went ahead and bought it because…well…as I said, I had stored away the memory of it in the back of my brain. I thought I would just take it home and it would speak to me about what I should do about it.
You are probably thinking, “Why didn’t she just hand it over to Yes!Chef! and say, ‘make something magic with this'”. I thought about that myself and when I brought it home I said something like, “Look what I found at World Market!!!”. He didn’t know what it was and really had no interest in it. I think I’ve mentioned before that he stays away from desserts because he had a bad experience with the first one he ever made (over 30 years ago.) I was on my own for this one.
