Dawg - expound on the caramel with the sweetened condensed milk. That is interesting. Why do you have it in the crock pot?

What are you canning/preserving today?

You put an unopened can or two of SCM, minus the label, in a crock pot, cover with water, and heat on low for 8 to 10 hours, then let cool. It becomes this lovely caramelly sauce that is good straight from the can, or as a fruit dip or spread. You can cook it the same way using sterilized canning jars, or on the stove in simmering water. The CP is nice as you don't have to watch it. Apparently it's quite popular in Mexico.

When I first read it I wondered why you were simmering the label.

So how'd label soup turn out? You do realize you can't just boil spoiled food and make it safe for consumption right.

My grandma used to put the unopened, label-free can in a pan of simmering water on the stove. It was fantastic on ice cream, warmed up a bit, topped with salted peanuts...mmmmmm...I always have a can or two in the pantry...like the crockpot method.

I haven't opened it yet. Should be fine, but I would recommend using a newer can! Surprisingly, SCM is good for a year after its best by date: http://www.eatbydate.com/dairy/milk/...st-shelf-life/

15 pints of chokecherry syrup. I have never had anything chokecherry before but DH says I knocked it out of the park. (Boy is it weird saying DH).

Hee hee! Happy for you! Having a DH is fun, right?
