i've never made it before, but dulce de leche, or a sweet milk "caramel" can be made from canned evaporated milk by boiling it for 2 hours.

the trick is to keep the entire can submerged for the duration or risk having sweet, gooey goodness all over everything.

Picked up a can or two for a recipe years ago, but can't remember what I used it for. Here's an idea of some uses for em:

Evaporated milk - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Have seen it in baking recipes.

Buckytom' you are mistaken. The dulche de leche is made out of Condensed milk. The rest is correct. And I’ve done it many times the end result is absolutely amazing.

P.S. The simple diference between regular milk and this is the concentration. It realy should be called concentrated milk. It would escribe it much better imho.

Evaporated milk is just that it can be used instead in cream soups etc but I like real cream instead ,condensed milks is a sweet somewhat syrupy milk meant for desserts.

Try this quick Thai green curry recipe. In a non-stick containe, pour a tin of evaporated milk, 1 teaspoon coconut essence. Add 1 dessertspoon green curry paste and simmer gently for a couple of minutes. Add the diced meat from 1/2 barbecued chicken, May be thickened with a small amount of cornflour (you call it cornstarch over there I think) Serve over boiled rice. Serves 2 Judydawn Australia
