How Do You Make Dulce De Leche?
Dulce de leche (“milk candy” in Spanish) is a rich and decadent sauce or syrup, similar in flavor to caramel. Unlike caramel, however, which is made by heating sugar, dulce de leche is prepared by heating sweetened milk. The process is simple but can take a long time. This article will outline various ways to make this creamy, wonderfully sweet, and silky smooth treat. • Easy, right? Remove the label from the can of condensed milk. It is no longer needed! If you leave it on, you’ll get a papery mess in the water. • Pierce two holes in the can with a can opener. Put the holes on opposite sides. Do not skip this step. Without these holes, the can may bulge and there is the danger of it exploding. • Place the can in a small pot and fill it with enough water to come up to one inch (2.5cm) from the top of the can. You will need to add more water during the cooking process to make sure water doesn’t go below this level as it evaporates. Don’t let the water come higher than 1/2 inch (1.25cm)
Dulce de leche is an incredibly delicious treat made with sweetened condensed milk-and nothing else. Naturally this is extremely easy to make, and it’s suitable for use with a wide variety of deserts. Step 1 Remove the label from a can of sweetened condensed milk. Step 2 Use a can opener to poke 2 holes in the top of the can. Step 3 Put the can in a pot, and fill the pot with water until the water level is around 1 inch from the top of the can. Step 4 Put the pot on the stove and turn the heat up until the water begins to simmer. Step 5 Let the can simmer for 2 to 4 hours, depending on whether you want your dulce de leche to be liquid or solid.
