I have been trying to use as few can goods as possible so when I saw a recipe for homemade sweetened condensed milk I knew I had to give it a try.
The flavor of the sweetened condensed milk is incredible and it’s very easy to make.
The problem with making your own is it tastes nothing like what’s comes in the can. So don’t make this recipe expecting the same product or you will be very disappointed. Although it taste completely different it still tastes great. It would be perfect in a pinch but not something I would replace the canned sweetened condensed milk with.
The consistency is pretty similar, the color is the same, but the flavor is very different. This is a perfect recipe to keep around for the moment when you realize you don’t have a can in the back of the pantry and you need it right away for a recipe.
