Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 cup hot tap water
2 cups sugar
2 cups non-fat dry milk powder
6 tablespoons melted margarine
blender or electric beaters
First get out your blender. You can beat mixture w/electric beaters
if you prefer, but blender really does better job. A food processor
would probably work pretty well too, but I’ve never tried it.
Pour hot water into blender. Add sugar, dry milk powder & melted
margarine. Put lid on blender & whirl around for 1 full minute.
Mixture will be kinda thin, but will thicken up after standing for
about 1 hour.
This recipe makes about 3 cups, or equivalent of 2 cans of condensed
milk. Each store-bought can of sweetened condensed milk contains
about 1 1/2 cups. So this recipe is equivalent to 2 cans.
Mixture may be measured & used right away in any recipe calling for
sweetened condensed milk. Or for longer storage, divide mixture
equally between 2 clean pint size canning jars. Store them in fridge
for 1 week. OR for longer storage, freeze them for a few months, &
then just thaw before using. Every time you use this recipe instead
of buying name brand stuff you will save about $3.00. Not bad for
less than five minutes work.
