Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk from Just as Delish
Total time: 2 hours
The healthier substitute of the canned condensed milk, using milk and sugar cooked until volume is reduced by half. Use it to sweeten your beverages, desserts, and toast!
Serves: less than 2 cups
1. In a heavy-bottomed pot, bring the milk and the sugar to a boil over medium heat.
2. Reduce the heat to low and simmer very gently for about two hours (yeah, I know..) until the volume is reduced by half. The mixture should be barely simmering and never bubbling at any point. Stir every 15 minutes or so to keep the milk from forming the “skin” on top. I forgot to stir and the milk burnt slightly and turn yellowish instead of remaining white.
3. After 2 hours, stir in butter.
4. Remove the pot from heat and let the milk cool. The mixture will thicken further after it has cooled.
