Condensed Milk

Making condensed milk is easier than you can imagine. Personally, I always thought that in order to make condensed milk you needed to put it in a pot and cook it on the stove. But to my relief and my families amazement making condensed milk is so easy. Check the recipe below!

 

You will need

2-Cups powdered milk (full cream or low fat)

2-Cups granulated sugar (I used brown and it came out great)

¾ to 1 cup boiling water

2 oz margarine or butter

A few drops of vanilla essence

An electric blender

 

Directions

In the blender, put the milk, sugar, boiling water, margarine and essence and blend until the sugar is melted and the mixture look smooth (about 5 minutes)

Pour into warm sterile jars. Seal and store in the refrigerator.

NOW! How easy was that? Never buy condensed milk again, sweetened your coffee and other treats with your own condensed milk. Some will argue that it is cheaper to just buy a tin, but from the recipe above you can yield 1 1/3 cups of milk now that is more than a small tin and it is even healthier and fun to make. In these, though economical times finding ways to save every cent is very important.
