    I have a neighbor that won’t let a box of powdered milk cross the threshold at her house but prefers evaporated milk. To make her sweetened condensed milk,she pours 1 lg can of milk into a large measuring cup heats it enough in the microwave to dissolve about 1 1/3 C. of white sugar.,pours into a mason jar,cools, then cap and refridgerates for a day or two before using

    I have several recipes for making sweetened condensed milk; I have not tried HBHW’s recipe.

    This is an excellent way to make desserts using sweetened condensed milk for diabetics.

    My husband was a Type II diabetic. I would make sweetened condensed milk with fat-free powdered milk or non-fat dairy creamer, sugar substitute, salt-free butter and boiling water. (We preferred the non-fat dairy creamer….it added more flavor.)

    Great for all types of meals and desserts…..including homemade ice cream.

    This one is great. I use it to make Magic Cookie (7-Layer) Bars and Tres Leche Cake quite often!
