7 ounces Masa Harina
1 1/2 quarts Water
3 cups Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 stick Canela
(Cinnamon Sticks) (4 inches)
Dissolve the masa harina in 1 quart of water, then strain the water into a saucepan (throw away the masa).
Boil until it is thick, stirring with a wooden spoon, about 15 minutes.
Add the milk, piloncillo, vanilla, and canela.
Bring the liquid back to a simmer, stirring often to thicken.
This will take about 45 minutes, keeping the heat at a minimum so the milk doesn’t curdle.
Remove the canela stick before serving.
Makes 8 servings.
