Tip: How to Make a Double Boiler

Double boilers are called for in lots of recipes, but if you don’t own one, it’s a pain to go find one, plus they can be very expensive! So I’m going to teach how to make your own! Start by putting some water in the bottom of a saucepan.

Bring the water to a boil and place your bowl on top. Make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water!

When your water is simmering, add whatever it is you’re melting.

Here, I’m melting cheese. But this is also great for melting chocolate, or marshmellows, I even make lemon curd in a this double boiler. Hope this helps you in the kitchen!
