This recipe equals one can of the commercial stuff--fairly good substitute and much cheaper to make.

  1. Place sugar and butter in the water and heat until butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved. Let this mixture cool.
  2. Put all ingredients into a blender and process until smooth.

Having this recipe is ultra convenient. I tried to substitute butter with margarine and the results were overly butter flavored. I would recommend using less utter rather than a substitute. I did find that if I allow the sugar and water to boil for a while, the cooled result is a much thicker consistency which is nice for recipes that need to set.

This was great!! I had 4 cans in my pantry.......but they were all expired....like since 2001.....I guess I don't use it very much! Anyway...I was in the middle of a recipe and needed sweetened evap milk......of course I thought of going right to the zaar.....and of course I found this recipe! I won't ever buy the canned stuff again!! This worked GREAT!! Thank you for sharing!!

I have not tried this recipe. I got it from a community cookbook. My copy says to use 3 tbl oleo (butter). Thanks for posting. I'll give this try when I need sweetened condensed milk again. Christine (internetnut)
