Uses for evaporated milk

I picked up some of this on sale and I guess you use it just like regular milk. So what is the pt? Does anyone have any special desserts that would go especially good with evaporated milk? thanks.

I have used evaporated milk to make a quick lemon mousse.

Quick Lemon Mousse

Ingredients:

2 lemons
1 lemon jelly
150 ml water (do not bring)
14 ½ oz can full fat evaporated milk (Morrison’s has worked very well in the past)
Small amount of sweets, chocolate, angelica or other decorations


Method:
  • Reserve four slices of lemon for decoration
  • Grate the rind from one lemon and extract the juice from both. Melt the jelly in the water over a gentle heat.
  • Remove the pan from the heat; add the lemon rind and juice. Pour into a small howl and leave to cool.
  • Whisk the evaporated milk until thick and doubled in volume. Carefully fold in the jelly mixture and pour into a large glass dish. Chill for about an hour or until set. Decorate with the lemon slices and pieces of angelica or sweets alike.

It's good in coffee - it's also good as a base for a very simple oyster stew (butter, salt, pepper, a bit of paprika...oh, and oysters). I know there's different ways but this way is simple and still good.

I use it often when a recipe calls for cream

I bought two tins of evaporated milk and lucky to find this thread, however, what makes this milk different from the usual milk and why do some recipes call for it and others just call for milk? anything special about it? Is it the same as condensed milk? Sorry, my ignorance is profound on this one!

While I've used it when it's specifically called for in a recipe, my primary reason for always keeping a can or two in the cupboard is in case I've unexpectedly run out (or soured) cream for my morning coffee.

Cocktail.

Half a cup of evaporated milk
Half a cup of chocolate liquor
A shot of vodka
Ice
I like to stir not shake, serve.

p.s. for those who do not like hard alcohol skip the vodka, and add some soda, which eve flavor you like.
