Recipe: How to make Homemade Pistachios Yema!

This is one of my favorite desserts when I was a kid. I think until now! Haha.
"Ate" Kelly asked me and Siena to help her make some "yema" and we agreed instantly.
I'll be sharing the steps and captured some photos while we're making it.
I was surprised with the ingredients. Read more to see why. :)

WHAT'S YEMA?
These are custard candies we inherited from Spanish colonizers of 300 years. 
The candy now is more filipino for we have added our own touch on it.

INGREDIENTS:
2 boxes of 250ml condensed milk
1/4 cup chopped pistachios
2 tbs cooking oil
We didn't use raw eggs coz it's not advisable for children.

Gather ingredients
preheat pan (use low heat)
add 2 tbsp cooking oil
pour the milk into the pan
stir as you are scraping the bottom of the pan slowly for 5-8 minutes to prevent sticking 
add pistachios and continue stirring for another 5 minutes
check if it's thick enough to cover the back of the spoon
pour into a container.
let it cool and form the shape that you want.
 Enjoy cooking! :)

xoxo,
