I put a couple cans of recently expired fat free sweetened condensed milk in the crockpot at midnight, covered them in water, left it on low all night, and just tasted some wonderful Dulce de Leche, straight from the can.

Does this have any special uses other than just eating as is?

The only cooking I've done this morning is my coffee! Of course, I get out of bed at 10am every day, so having coffee at noon isn't strange.

Probably. This is the first time I ever made it. It's very popular in Mexico. Apple/fruit dip, smear on cookies or cake layers, ice cream, fruit salad dressing, maybe mixed with some yogurt.. It tastes much better than store apple caramel dip. You could probably mix in some peanut butter and/or mini chocolate chips, nuts, etc.

I was chatting with a friend last night, and she mentioned the boil in can method, and how good the stuff was. I found 2 cans in the cupboard that had expired in Nov., and thought, why not? Found the CP method, and it worked!

Thanks Dawgluver! What an easy and delicious way to make it!

I am not cooking exactly. But I am attempting to make a sourdough starter. Its my third day and I just fed the little bugger. It has a buttermilky smell and a bunch of little bubbles on the top. Which I am told is a good thing. Hope it works out.

I hope it works for you also. A buttermilky smell would drive my cat Dinky to distraction! He gets a tablespoon of Buttermilk for a snack every evening at 6:30pm. If I forget, he yells at me until I get it. NOWWWW! He says!

Nothing at the moment, but I am about to start the caramel for my mock Almond Roca and when DH gets home with the ground beef and veal I will be making the filling for my tourtieres I didn't get made yesterday because the veal didn't arrive at the store.
