Dulche le Leche

If you love caramel or Dulche le Leche you might like this super easy way to make it at home. All you need is a can or two of sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated milk), a big kettle with a wire rack that fits in it, water, a lid, a stove and some patience. I like to make a couple at a time. Once cooled they can go back to the cupboard until you are ready to open and use them.

 Dulce de Leche (Milk Jam)

This is the easiest way to make Dulce de Leche…the taste is pretty authentic and the work is almost completely eliminated!

1 can sweetened condensed milk

Place the can inside the pot on top of a wire rack. Add water to completely cover can, plus 1-2 more inches. Simmer, covered, for 4 hours, making sure the can is always completely covered with water…if not…there is an explosion! ! Leave the can to cool several hours and only then open it and serve. You will find the sweetened condensed milk is now a rich golden color and  has a rich, creamy texture.  Serve the golden-brown confection over flan, as a filling for crepes, cakes or just plain. For breakfast you can spread it on croissants, rolls or toast.

Note: The round wire racks used to cool cakes are a great fit for your kettle. If you don’t have one you can set the cans on a towel placed in the bottom of the pot. Just be VERY careful that the cans are not resting directly on the bottom of the kettle.
