Ingredients

    La Fe Sweetened Condensed Milk Can, label removed

Directions

  • STEP ONE
    Begin by placing the La Fe Sweetened Condensed Milk Can with the label removed on its side in a large pot.

  • STEP TWO
    Following this, fill the pot with room temperature water. Make sure to fill the pot so that the water level is 2-inches above the can.

  • STEP THREE
    Now set the pot over high heat and allow the water to come to a simmer.

  • STEP FOUR
    Once the water is brought to a simmer, reduce the heat and simmer for 2-3 hours. 2 hour simmer yields a lighter dulce de leche. 3 hour simmer yields a thicker and darker dulce de leche. Make sure to check the pot every 30 minutes to make sure that the water level stays above the can.

  • STEP FIVE
    Once finished simmering, use a pair of tongs to remove the can from the pot and set aside to cool. Making sure to not open the cans prematurely.

  • STEP SIX
    Once cooled, open the can and scoop out the Dulce de Leche. Reheat, the scooped Dulce in a double boiler to soften the Dulce for a more spreadable consistency.

    Note
    You can place all unused Dulce de Leche in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks and that any extra unopened cans of Dulce De Leche can be stored at room temperature for up to 3 months.
