Directions Matter

Mmm--creme brulee!  My boy and I were home alone for dinner and I found the perfect pudding--two  glass ramekins of lovely, creamy creme brulee.  What could be better to wrap up a dinner at home with my boy!  I was so excited by my find I didn't even read the package.  I just added it to my cart, mentally counting the hours until we could dig in.

The moral of the story is:  directions matter!  Our pre-made creme brulee came sans brulee.  Instead of a delicous crunchy caramel topping we got a foil pouch of grainy brown sugar and instructions to melt it with our torch.  (Seriously--our torch!)  Since I can't be trusted with a source of fire, creative thinking was required to put the brulee in our creme.

Surprise surprise--a mere match is no match for the sugar topping on creme brulee.  Instead of classic creme brulee, we ended up with custard and crunchy  sugar with a unique sulpher after taste--but we ate it anyway!

  1. I think I prefer the custard and crunchy sugar with a unique sulphur after taste; but what bastardry in the packaging, I can forgive you for having too much sugar after that! (And, if I’m not mistaken, it almost warrants the purchase of a new handbag (just to teach the creme brulee manufacturers a jolly good lesson!))
