Make Your Own Condensed Milk

In our previous episode I spoke about phony condensed milk that is flooding the marketplaces around the world-- if you missed it, the link is in the description below. Today I am going to show you how to make your own condensed milk at home using simply milk and sugar. Given that the majority of recipes require condensed milk on can measurements, this dish will make the specific equivalent of a single can of condensed milk. If you require 2 cans, just double up the dish and change the timings accordingly.
The added bonus of making your own condensed milk is that it works out at roughly half the rate of store-bought condensed milk.
To begin, ration 2 and one quarter cups of complete cream milk, and 2 thirds of a cup of sugar plus one tablespoon. You can use any white sugar, nevertheless I prefer to utilize caster sugar as it is highly improved and includes less pollutants, leading to less residue or slag that has actually to be skimmed from the top of the pot.


Location a heavy bottomed pot over medium heat and pour in the milk and sugar. Stir this till the sugar has dissolved. When it is liquified as the bottom of the pot will be smooth, you will understand.
At this stage, remove the spatula from the pot and wait till the milk just comes to a mild simmer around the edges.
Decrease the heat and enable this to simmer gently for 35-40 minutes. The exact timing will depend on what pot you utilize, your stove, and numerous other variables.
Throughout this stage it is necessary not to disrupt the milk in any method. Upseting the milk or stirring will knock sugar crystals that form on the edges of the pot back into the mixture, and this will result in a rough condensed milk.
When the milk has decreased to half of it's initial volume, utilize a spoon dipped in a little water to skim any slag or residue.
If the milk coats you spoon and leaks off from the spoon like pouring cream, the process is total.
Eliminate the pot from the heat and put the condensed milk through a screen to strain out any skin and slag that you might have missed with the spoon.
Enable the condensed milk to cool to room temperature level prior to cooling and covering. The condensed milk will last for 6 months under refrigeration.
As the condensed milk cools it will thicken dramatically to the consistency of store-bought condensed milk.
And there we have it, silky-smooth creamy condensed milk made right here in the house.
