Besides idiots that don't watch the pot
Why, exactly, are you boiling milk?
I make these for dinner all the time. They are quick, easy, and I love them. Most of them require something like 2 cups of water and 1/2 a cup of milk. Boil, throw in the ingredients and boil over medium heat for 10 minutes.
bah! american stuff! We eat stuff that looks EXACTLY like that package, but it says "Side kicks".
Yep, boil half milk, half water for these.
oh yeah, milk boils over because, basically, milk is composed of many ingredients, its not a simple liquid like water. So when you slowly boil milk, the ingredients seperate. for this, the protein and fat are called a "Cream" and they are lighter than the milk itself they rise to the surface. At the same time there is water mixed in, so the water tries to evaporate as it boils, but it gets stuck under the cream. Eventually, the water vapour pushes the cream up over the pan, and "boils over"
adammit, second time writing this... forgot to edit///
to prevent the milk/water mixture to boil over, put something in the pot to make a path for the water vapour to escape since it's lighter than the cream and the milk. something like a stick or something thats insulated so it won't hold the heat.
I definetally never knew that. Thanks steve
Steve's a little homemaker!

Steve needs to go to the CIA. UM, Culinary Institute of America.
What does Culinary mean, and why do I need to go there
"of or relaing to the kitchen or cookery" i.e. school for chefs
Culinary schools are where people go to become chefs, you like to cook and know about cooking so going to a culinary school would make you become a chef, or a great cook. It's just a compliment.
Ahhh, Stave redeems himself
You shouldnt eat that crap. It's loaded with sodium and preservatives. For what it cost You to buy that gross stuff You could buy the stuff to make the real stuff and it would taste much better.
BTW, milk usually boils over cause the heat is to high
ahhh I used to want to be a Chef when I was little. Not anymore...
STEVE! ever thought of becoming a chemist???
Yup Steve, you could be an Engineer!
