Life Hacks --Sugaring the Coffee with the Milk


I have a book on Appalachian folk music. One of the fiddle ditties goes:

How the hell
do the old folks know,
that I take sugar
in my coffee - O.

This popped into my head this morning, as I discovered another Life Hack. I found a way to sugar my coffee as the same time that I add milk.

Yesterday I made Pina Coladas for our UK guests. I had half a tin of sweetened condensed milk left over. I popped it into the fridge, and this morning as I was pouring my morning coffee, I got the Eureka moment of sweetening the coffee with the milk.

It works like a charm. The sweetened condensed milk not only whitens the coffee, but sweetens it to an acceptable, but not overly sweet level.
