What is evaporated milk?

What's the difference between evaporated milk and a gallon of milk you can get anywhere?

What about cooking with it?

Evaporated milk is milk that has been reduced in volume by half. If you would add and equal amount of water to a can of evaporated milk, you would have fulll strength milk. It is useful used as is as a sub for cream.

Condensed milk is evaporated milk to which lots of sugar is added.

Condensed = sweet
Evaporated = not sweet
