Sweetened Condensed Milk – Is simply cow’s milk and sugar which when heated, approximately 60% of the “water” has been removed, creating a sticky, sweet mixture. Due to the viscosity of this canned milk product it is very often used in desserts that do not rely heavily on another thickener to bind the recipe. It also imparts a slight caramel taste to it as a result of the cooking and canning process.
Storage– Unopened, a can will keep for 6 months. Once opened, 5 days in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
