easiest way of doing homemande dulce de leche, you only need 1 ingredient,a sweet condensed milk can, that’s it and water of course.
their are 3 methods of doing this homemade dulce de leche
- stove top
- instant pot
- slow cooker
the only thing that is going to be different is the time that you cook the sweet condensed milk.
Once the dulce de leche is ready wait a little to get cold so you don’t burn your fingers when you try to open the can.
to do dulce de leche with this method you are going to put a pan where you can add the can in the center, then add water that cover the entire can having 1 inch more of water.
cook ir for around 1 hour to 1 hour and half, low medium temperature.
something that I like to do, is to do more then 1 can.
HOW TO DO IT IN THE INSTANT POT
Do the same procedure as the stove top adding the can to the instant pot and cook it for 40 minutes.
HOW TO COOK IT ON THE SLOW COOKER
you cook it for 8 hours in low.
HOW CAN I KNOW IF IS IT READY?
You can make a hole in the center of the top of the can, if sweet condensed milk comes from the little hole, it means that you need to continue cooking for a little longer more.
then you need to add a toothpick in the hole that you made so you can stop the sweet condensed milk from coming out while cooking.
IS CARAMEL THE SAME AS DULCE DE LECHE?
no there is not, caramel and dulce de leche are 2 different things.
the big difference between this 2 is that dulce de leche is made from milk and and the caramel is made from sugar and water.
CAN I SUBSTITUTE CARAMEL FROM DULCE DE LECHE?
it will depends on the recipe. so you may have to give it a try, but for caramel apples it won’t work, the dulce de leche never hardens like the apple caramel.
Hope you enjoy this article or should I say this easy easy recipe,. how you can make homemade dulce de leche de easy way and so inexpensive.
CAN I FREEZE IT?
Yes you can, BUT not in the can, add the dulce de leche to a ziploc bag and freeze it with no problem.
