Getting The Right Milk Temperature

Hands can get insensitive, temp probes inaccurate but by using your ears, the milk will always  tell you when it's done

Today's Hot Tip is how to get the right milk temperature without using a thermometer... 


Clue: it's all about listening... (not always my strong point)

As milk heats up, the tone of your milk also changes. As the tone begins to drop off, it's time to stop heating and start pouring!

If your milk starts growling, give it a whiff... smell like off milk??? sorry, but you've just burnt your milk, you might want to start again...

Still reaching for that temperature probe?? Keep practising, with time and practice you'll use your probe more for latte art than temperature!
