So, we’ve all been there…
gathering all of the ingredients to make a new recipe – you’ve even gone out to the market to pick up some of the stuff you don’t normally keep in the house, then…
you pull out that can of sweetened condensed milk you noticed earlier, so you didn’t bother picking up a new can because you don’t really use it all that often, but…
It’s evaporated milk! An it expired when?
Fortunately, we live in the age of da Google, so, online I went…
and found this wicked easy replacement, made from common kitchen ingredients that worked a treat!
Note: I will concede that instant nonfat dry milk may not be a common kitchen ingredient, but, once you’ve made your own (and better) pasteurized processed cheese – you know the stuff I’m talkin’ about – trust me, instant nonfat dry milk will be a kitchen staple around about your place, too.
•1 cup nonfat dry milk
•2/3 cup sugar
•3 tbsp melted butter*
•1/2 tsp vanilla
•1/2 cup boiling water
*I actually used 2-2/3 tablespoons of butter and it worked out fine. Full explanation of that, tomorrow.
Place the nonfat dry milk, the sugar, the butter, and the vanilla in the jar of your blender.
Pour the boiling water over all, cover, and blend on high speed for about half a minute, until everything is smooth and thick and creamy.
Sweetened condensed milk. Who knew?
