Dulce De Leche

You can buy it ready-made, but dulce de leche, a Latin version of pure caramel, is easy to make at home. All you need is a can or two of condensed milk. This makes a double batch but it seems to last refrigerated, for quite a while and is on hand for recipes or just warming, and drizzling over ice-cream.

2 14 ounce cans condensed milk *

Open the cans and place the condensed milk in the top of a double boiler. Cook over low heat, stirring once in awhile, for 2-3 hours, until it turns deep caramel or medium amber in colour.

Remove from stove and cool and then refrigerate. It will thicken a lot on cooling. If you want to use it as a sauce, stir it briskly and thin it with a little melted butter or cream and pour over pancakes.

Makes about 2 cups. Keep refrigerated for up to 1  month.
