Am I the only person on earth who didn't know you could make Dulce de Leche by simply simmering a can of sweetened condensed milk? It's the perfect camping recipe and so delicious, you won't believe it!
Put a can of sweetened, condensed milk in a pot of room temperature water (not boiling, or the can might explode) and bring to a vigorous simmer. Simmer for three hours.
After three hours, pop open the top and you have a perfect, creamy container of Dulce de Leche. Good on ice cream, pound cake, a plain cookie or *shh* right off the spoon.
Be still my heart.
And shout-out to my mother-in-law, Judy Valentine, who showed me the way AND cooked up the Dulce de Leche in the photo above.
