Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk Recipe

Living in the country I try my best to keep a fully stocked pantry but that just doesn’t always work out, especially for things that are not commonly used like sweetened condensed milk.  I only make a few recipes each year that need this delectable ingredient, but when I need it I need it.    One day I ran out and quickly had to resort to driving 24 miles into town or figuring out how to make my own homemade sweetened condensed milk.  Guess which option I picked?

I vaguely at one time remember my mom telling me that it was just milk and a ton of powdered sugar.  I thought how hard could it be and so I hit the internet.  I found out quickly that my mom was wrong but she did set me on the right path in knowing that I could make my own homemade sweetened condensed milk.  Not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing because I will let you onto a little secret that I LOVE this stuff.  It’s really like a creamy bite of heaven on a spoon that I can’t wait to lick after cleaning out the blender.  A very dangerous combination to know that I always have the ingredients on hand!
