Keyword: homemade, milk
Skill Level: Basic
2cups(16 oz) lowfat milk
2/3cups(5oz) white sugarI use natural cane
Add the milk and sugar into a small, heavy bottomed saucepan.
Heat it on a low heat until the sugar has dissolved.
Once all of the sugar has dissolved bring the mix to a simmer over medium low heat. Do not stir once the mix starts to simmer otherwise it can crack and crystalize.
Gently simmer for roughly 35-40 minutes, or until the milk has darkened to a creamy color, has reduced by half and thickened slightly. You may notice some foam forming on top, gently skim it off with a spoon. (if there are sugary bits hanging around the rim of your pot don’t stir them into your condensed milk, this can also crack your mix)
When ready, remove from the heat and pour into a jar to cool. Let the condensed milk cool completely before putting on the airtight lid. Just note, it thickens up alot after a few hours in the fridge.
Store in a labeled jar in the fridge and it will last for 6 months.
