I explain how to make Flan and I bash America in the process.

I don’t get out much, so seeing food that isn’t McDonald’s is something new.

I live in the United States. The food here is stereotypically filled with lard and a bunch of sugar.

Grease or Lard is the semi-delicate, white fat situated in the fattiest parts of a pig. Utilized as a cooking fat for quite a long time, grease became undesirable when hydrogenated vegetable shortening was designed in the mid-twentieth century. We currently realize that hydrogenated fats, additionally called trans fats, may expand the danger of coronary illness. Fat has become a mainstream cooking fat indeed on the grounds that it contains no trans fats and offers various advantages.

So it’s not healthy. Mcdonald’scaramel-like the French crème caramel, or a tart-like sweet cake with a filling called an organic product flan.

The ingredients are ¾ cup of white sugar. 2 ¼ eggs. ¾ (or 14 ounces) of canned sweetened condensed milk. ¾ (of 12 fluid ounces) of canned evaporated milk. And finally ½ tablespoon of vanilla extract.

White sugar, likewise called table sugar, granulated sugar, or standard sugar, is a usually utilized sort of sugar, made both of beet sugar or genuine sweetener, which has gone through a refining interaction, in case you were not sure.

Condensed milk is cow's milk from which water has been removed. It is most often found with sugar added, in the form of sweetened condensed milk, to the extent that the terms "condensed milk" and "sweetened condensed milk" are often used interchangeably today.

Evaporated milk is produced using cow's milk and has a thick, velvety surface. The flavor is rich, caramelized, and somewhat sweet.

This is for a serving of 3 people. And you find it at your local Walmart for around 14 to 15 dollars depending on how much you buy, the price might go up or down.

The first step is preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Or if you are not in America or you just do not go by Fahrenheit, then that would be around 175 degrees celsius.

The second step is you must get a medium saucepan that you should have on hand if you do not. What are you doing if you do not have a medium saucepan on hand at all times? So once you get your saucepan you put it over medium to low heat. Then you melt the sugar over your medium saucepan, which is over your medium to low heat, and you do this until the sugar is a golden color. You pour that into a nine-inch round glass baking dish. You have to make sure you get all nine inches of the round glass dish covered.

The third step is getting a large bowl. If it is not a large bowl you might run into a few issues farther down the line. You get your 2 ¼, no clue where you would find the ¼ of an egg at a store, but you got this! They probably sell them somewhere. If you did not listen to the first step it would be time to preheat your oven now. You then mix the eggs very rapidly so they are in a beating motion. You beat the condensed milk, the evaporated milk (you can get those both on amazon and that's a very unsettling fact), is and vanilla until they are all smooth. Then you pour the egg and all of that into a baking dish. You can put aluminum foil over it, but that's kinda dangerous, so just put it in without it.

You put it in the oven for sixty minutes and then let it cool and then you eat!
