DID YOU KNOW?

Producing this Condensed Milk began in the Mid-nineteenth Century and was driven by the need to find ways to preserve milk.

The first sweetened hermetically-sealed condensed cow’s milk was produced by Gale Borden in the United States. The process spread quickly into Europe.

Later, it was adopted by the Anglo-Swiss company Page-Nestle’ which became Nestle’. Standardization was only established later at the beginning of the 20th Century.

Condensed milk has a long shelf life and low moisture compared to regular milk. It is widely used in various deserts, sweet-savory foods, fudge, candies, waffles and baked goods as well as companion to coffee, tea and other drinks. 

 

 

HOW TO MAKE CONDENSED MILK AT HOME

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

1 cup instant nonfat dry milk powder

2/3 cup granulated sugar

1/3 to 1/2 cup boiling water

1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

 

 

DIRECTIONS

Pour thee dry milk powder, granulated sugar, 1/3 cup of the boiling water, and the melted butter in a blender. Blend all ingredients together until they are smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender occasionally to get all of the ingredients completely combined.

If your homemade condensed milk is too thick to pour easily, add another spoonful or two of boiling water and blend to incorporate. Adjust the water until you get that thick runny consistency

Use your homemade sweetened condensed milk right away or store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days. It will get thicker when it is refrigerated but will loosen up when stirred and brought to room temperature.

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE GHANA CONDENSED MILK TOFFEE

On a medium heat, add the condensed milk and 2 teaspoons oil. The reason for the oil is to prevent the toffee from sticking as it cooks.

As you continue to cook and stir the condensed milk, the color will progressively change into a golden brown.

Turn the heat off and transfer the toffee onto a lightly oiled surface. Let it cool a bit. Do not let it cool completely or it will be too hard to mold.

Roll and cut the toffee into any shape you prefer while it’s still warm.

Store in an air tight glass container.

For a softer caramel candy, add 2 tablespoonful of the Lime/Lemon juice when cooking.
