I did this for several desserts that I made this holiday season. It is simple to do and tastes delicious. Do not put the can in the microwave or unopened in a pan of water, as the can will likely explode and cause damage to your kitchen and to you. dam

Caramelizing Sweetened Condensed Milk

Eagle Brand® transforms into a very decadent, rich caramel-flavored milk after a process called "caramelizing". Try one of the methods listed below for perfect results, and remember… never heat an unopened can.

Oven method:
Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Pour Eagle Brand® into 8 or 9-inch (20 or 23 cm) pie plate. Cover with foil; place in larger shallow pan. Fill outer pan with hot water. Bake 1-1 1/2 hours* or until thick and light caramel-colored. Remove foil. Cool and chill. Refrigerate leftovers. *Check water level in pan during baking time and refill if necessary.

Stovetop method:
Pour Eagle Brand® into top of double boiler; cover. Place over boiling water. Over low heat, simmer 1-1 1/2 hours or until thick and light caramel-colored.
Beat until smooth, if desired. Cool and chill. Refrigerate leftovers.

Microwave method:
Pour Eagle Brand® into 8 cup (2 L) glass measure. Cook, uncovered, at Medium (50%) 4 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Reduce power to Medium Low (30%) and cook, uncovered, 12 to 16 minutes or until thick and light caramel-colored; stir briskly every 2 minutes until smooth. Cool and chill. Refrigerate leftovers.

In reply to Athena in DE's recipe for stuffed pork stomach. I was raised in he deep south in SC and we never let any part of a hog or beef go to waste. I do not remember this exact recipe but we would cook and eat everything possible. My kids and grandkids go bonkers when I let them in on some of the secrets of what we ate.
I do not send recipes because I was raised by my grandmother who was in her 70's and she did not measure anything. Just tasted it and when it tasted "right" she would serve it.

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
