    Default Evaporated milk - what to do with it?

    I opened a can and used some for a lemon pie. Anything else you can
    make from the leftover milk?

    I've used Carnation fat-free evaporated milk for breakfast cereal with
    great success. The evaporation of water adds a sweetness that makes it a
    great version of milk when applied to breakfast cereal, imho.

    Best,

    I imagine you could use it in mashed potatoes, any cream sauce or soup
    recipe. Perhaps as the milk in a meatloaf recipe that calls for soaking
    the breadcrumbs??

    Hello Dolly Bar

    ½ cup butter or margarine
    1 ½ cups graham wafer crumbs
    1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
    1-cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or more
    1-¼ cups flaked coconut (long sweet)
    1 cup chopped nuts

    Preheat oven to 350° or 325° if using glass dish.
    In 13x9" baking pan, melt butter in oven.
    Sprinkle crumbs over butter; mix together and press into pan.
    Pour Eagle Brand evenly over crumbs.
    Sprinkle with chips, then coconut and nuts; press down firmly.

    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
    Cool well before cutting.
    Store loosely covered at room temperature.

    NOTE: This is how we put it together: graham base, top with nuts, coconut &
    chocolate chips. Pour Eagle Brand over it all. Sometimes we add the Eagle Brand
    in between layers too; still only using 1 can!




    Nanaimo Bars

    ½ cup butter
    ¼ cup brown sugar
    ¼ cup cocoa
    1 egg, beaten
    2 cups graham wafer crumbs
    1 cup coconut, flaked or shredded
    ½ cup walnuts or peanuts, chopped
    1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
    1/3 cup Lemon juice
    1/3 cup melted chipits semi-sweet chocolate baking chips

    Melt butter and stir in sugar, cocoa, egg, crumbs, coconut and walnuts.
    Press into bottom of a 9x9" pan.
    Combine Eagle Brand with lemon juice.
    Blend well and spread onto base.
    Sprinkle with toasted almonds or pistachios or drizzle with melted chocolate
    chips.
    Refrigerate until firm (about 2 hours).

    ***Note: It's important to use butter for a couple of reasons; the filling
    will be lighter in color. It also has a lighter taste.

    I'll correct myself. The evaporation process doesn't ADD sweetness, rather
    it more pronounces the content of sugar that was there to begin with.

    Yes, but the OP may have misspoke. Wouldn't you use sweetened
    condensed milk in lemon pie? I use it in Key Lime pie. Regular
    evaporated milk can simply be used--as is, or diluted 1:1 with water--
    wherever you use fresh milk. What to do with sweetened condensed milk
    is a tougher question. Just in case, here's the recipe for Key Lime
    pie I've posted before.

    Key Lime Pie

    Graham Cracker Crust

    1.5 cups well crushed graham crackers, or a little more for a thicker
    crust
    3 TB sugar
    1 cube (1/4 lb) butter (or a little less), very soft

    I use the mini-food processor for the crumbs, getting them as fine as
    possible. Or you can put them in a bag and roll them vigorously with a
    rolling pin. Mix the ingredients well and press firmly into a 9" pie
    plate. You may find it helpful to use the bottom of a jar to press
    the crumbs into the plate. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 10 - 12
    minutes until lightly browned. (experience says if you overbake it
    the crust will be tough.) Place on a rack to cool fully. You may
    want to shape the crust a little more at this point as it'll be soft
    and pliable while hot..

    Pie Filling

    4 large or extra large egg yolks
    1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
    1/2 cup fresh key lime juice
    2 teaspoons grated or microplaned lime zest, yellow [or green]
    portion only


    Zest or grate the limes before cutting them to juice. Beat the egg
    yolks very well until they are thick and turn a lighter yellow.
    Remove the lid of the sweetened milk with a can opener; don't make
    holes with a churchkey. It's too thick to pour well out of holes.
    Add the sweetened condensed milk and half the lime juice to the egg
    yolks, stirring/mixing slowly but well until it's all well
    incorporated. Then add the remaining juice and the zest, mix until
    well blended. Pour the mixture into the cooled pie shell and bake at
    350°F for about 12 minutes, until custard is just set. Cool on a
    rack, then refrigerate for 2 hours or so to fully set the filling.
    Bring back to room temp for serving, if desired. Whipped cream
    topping is optional but a good complement. -aem

    Now she will need to buy sweetened condensed milk and still have a
    partial can of condensed milk.

    Nope. The recipe was from "White Trash Cooking," and it called for
    BOTH evaporated milk and condensed milk.

    If you can't bear to throw it out, mix it with some regular milk and
    stretch your supply - then use in cooking? Clam chowduh?

    Evap is good in coffee, excellent drizzled over nilla ice cream, and
    over cooked chocolate pudding... I also love it with my breakfast
    flakies... it'll also whip just like whipped cream.

    It is milk that is reduced in volume by 40% by removing water; use it anyway
    you would milk by adding water equal to 2/3s the amount of evaporated milk.
    Or, use it as is for a richer milk taste in things like mashed potatoes,
    soups, etc. If using it in ways where it is readily tasted, for example
    drinking or on cereal, you may find it tastes a bit different that fresh
    milk; it may tastes slightly caramelized due to the heat used in the
    evaporation and canning process.

    It doesn't taste "a bit different." It tastes a lot different.
    Canned milk should have gone the way of the buggy whip decades ago.

    I ALWAYS use evaporated milk for: meatloaf and scalloped/au gratin
    potatoes. Works better than plain whole milk or light cream - adds
    richness without as much fat. I cannot, however STAND the taste of it
    "raw"! ;-)
