Home-made Condensed Milk

With the holidays coming I know we use a lot more "condensed milk" then usual in baking. Here's a good recipe for it that won't cost you $ 2.39 a can. It's good for anything that's cooked....but I don't recommend it for a cheesecake recipe that's not baked. Try the small one...it makes an equivalent to one 14 ounce can of condensed milk. If you like it...then make the large one. We make the large and keep it in the refrigerator in 14 ounce portions so it's ready to use when I'm ready to use it!

EQUAL TO 1 (14 OUNCE) CAN CONDENSED MILK

2/3 CUP SUGAR

3 TABLESPOONS SOFTENED MARGARINE

1/3 CUP BOILING WATER

1 CUP DRY MILK



LARGE: EQUAL TO 6 (14 OUNCE) CANS CONDENSED MILK

8 CUPS DRY MILK

3 STICKS SOFTENED MARGARINE

5 1/3 CUPS SUGAR

2 2/3 CUPS BOILING WATER



Mix altogether and use!

I've never made it in such a large quantity - my recipe is much smaller. Thanks.

Send a message via MSN to cc2003btw
Does it have the exact same properties, ie. you could boil it and end up with toffee.

Is there any special way you mix the stuff? I mean like water first with sugar and then whatever, just want to make sure that i do it right. I actually have been looking for the recipe for years as condenced milk is not available for me.

As to the properties of the homemade condensed milk: I've made flan using it and the traditional kind to see if there was a difference and we could tell no difference.
