This recipe equals one can of the commercial stuff--fairly good substitute and much cheaper to make.
- Place sugar and butter in the water and heat until butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved. Let this mixture cool.
- 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)
