I ran out of dulce de leche this week. Being a bit of a lazy bones (I only made it to the gym once this week – I should be there as we speak) I thought I’ld have a go at making my own, instead schlepping a couple of jars across Paris.
After doing a bit of research on the net (what would I do without it) it seems like making the stuff is a doddle. Basically, you just stick a can of condensed milk in a pot of water and simmer gently for a good couple of hours, topping up the water level. A minimum of 2 hours for a light/runnier confiture or 4 hours for deeper caramel flavour like mine. I suggest making a couple of cans at the same time as it’s quite a lengthy procedure. The confiture de lait keeps a long time (not the case with me).
Stay tuned for more dulce de leche recipes…
