DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the milk, sugar, vanilla bean and seeds in a large, 4-quart saucepan and place over medium heat.
  • Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Once the sugar has dissolved, add the baking soda and stir to combine.
  • Reduce the heat to low and cook uncovered at a bare simmer. Stir occasionally, but do not re-incorporate the foam that appears on the top of the mixture. Continue to cook for 1 hour.
  • Remove the vanilla bean after 1 hour and continue to cook until the mixture is a dark caramel color and has reduced to about 1 cup, approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  • Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer. Store in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to a month.
