LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

WE ARE SO ADDICTED TO THIS, VLA, A DUTCH CUSTARDY DESSERT


We are addicted to these, vla. What is vla exacty? It is a Dutch dessert, kind of custard. Our source of dairy. This is Wiki's definition of it.

This dairy product made from fresh milk first appeared in the 1950s. Traditional vla is made of cooked milk with custard, or with a combination of eggs, cornstarch, vanilla and sugar. Vla has the viscosity of yoghurt and is served cold, but is sweet rather than sour.

Vla is available in many different flavours. Plain vanilla vla is frequently served as a vlaflip, with yoghurt and fruit syrup. It comes in several flavours, such as chocolate, caramel, vanilla, banana, etc. Dairy producers will also regularly experiment with unusual variations.
Vla found in Dutch supermarkets is usually also made with other additives including thickeners. Vla was originally sold in glass bottles and the consistency made extracting the complete amount difficult, so a special bottle scraper ("flessenschraper" or "flessenlikker") was specifically designed. Despite the fact that vla is now normally sold in cartons, these scrapers are still common in Dutch family kitchens. However, as they are no longer mass produced they are slowly vanishing.
