“While I use this recipe to make Banana Tarts every Christmas, I always keep a can of prepared caramel in the refrigerator for snacks. The kids really enjoy a small spoonful with sliced apples and bananas, much better than that runny store bought version.”
- 1 can eagle brand sweetened, condensed milk
- Place can of milk in a large, deep pan. You want the pan to be at least twice the depth of the can. Fill with water so water is well over top of can.
- Boil can for 2 hours, watching constantly, and refilling with water. Be sure water level NEVER falls below the top of the can.
- Remove and cool.
- Remove lid from can and it will now contain caramel.
An open can of caramel, covered tightly with plastic wrap, will last for months in the refrigerator.
