Can’t find sweetened condensed milk to use for that new ice cream or dessert recipe you’ve been wanting to try? It’s actually not difficult to make sweetened condensed milk right at home. All you need is a pot, a blender, and three ingredients!
In a small pot, combine water with sugar on medium-low heat and whisk until the sugar completely dissolves. Bring it to a quick boil to make a simple syrup.
Carefully place the sugar syrup into a blender and blend it for two minutes. Slowly start to add the powdered milk into the blender and continue blending until the milk is well dissolved.
Transfer to a small jar and place it in the fridge for a couple of hours until it thickens.
what is milky cream
Making actual condensed milk is so simple, why would you resort to milk powders and blenders? Set 2 cups of good quality milky cream, two cups of full fat milk and 1 1/3 cups of sugar over a low flame, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. allow to simmer (not boil) undisturbed until reduced in volume by half. The remaining liquid should be thick, yellow, sweet and delicious. pour into a glass container or bottle and leave to cool in the fridge. Yum!
how long does this last in the fridge?
