How to Make Your Own Sweetened Condensed Milk at Home
To make your own sweetened condensed milk at home, all you need are milk, sugar, butter, and about two hours of your time.
Simply place milk and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to a very low simmer for about two hours until liquid volume is reduced by half. Mix in a tablespoon of butter and remove pot from heat until milk has thickened to desired consistency. Use right way or place in a container with lid in refrigerator until ready to use.
Condensed milk can be used as a topping for toast, coffee, ice cream, and shaved ice, and can also be used for a number of dessert recipes. For a healthier alternative, you can replace milk with coconut milk and sugar with coconut sugar.
