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!
