    Default How to use up half a can of condensed milk?

    I put just a little condensed milk into a coconut topping to help bind
    it together... now what should I do with the other half of the can?
    That stuff's too expensive to waste!

    I like it in REALLY strong coffee. They drank it that way in Spain.
    Also, it makes decent caramel/dulce de leche. Here are the instructions
    I got off the internet, because usually I just pressure-cook an unopened
    can when I wanna do it.

    Oven method; Pour 1 can sweetened condensed milk into 9 inch pie plate.
    Cover with foil; place in larger shallow pan. Fill larger pan with hot
    water. Bake at 425 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until thick and caramel
    colored. Beat until smooth.

    Stovetop Method: Pour 1 can condensed milk into top of double boiler;
    place over boiling water. Over low heat, simmer 1 to 1 1/2 hours or
    until thick and caramel colored. Beat until smooth.

    Microwave Method: Pour 1 can condensed milk into 2 quart glass measure.
    cook on 50 % power (medium) for 4 minutes, stirring briskly every 2
    minutes until smooth. cook on 30% power (medium-low) 12-18 minutes ot
    until very thick and caramel colored, stirring briskly every 2 minutes
    until smooth.

    A half-can of condensed milk has 442 calories. So, drink the
    condensed milk, and subtract 442 calories from what you
    would otherwise eat today.

    Where I live, condensed milk is usually sweetened, and would be really
    yucky on any of those foods.

    Ummm... those all sound like uses for EVAPORATED milk, not condensed.
    Condensed milk is super-sweet and it would be vile in any of those
    savoury dishes!

    Agreed. I can't imagine using condensed milk in anything that's not a
    dessert... but recipes usually call for a whole can!

    Have you tried goat caramel such as is sold in Mexican grocery
    stores? I much prefer it to cow caramel.

    (Tangentially, I never encountered strong coffee in Spain.
    Every place I went to used an espresso machine that
    was adjusted to produce a really weak stream of coffee...)

    Hot fudge topping.

    My usual "recipe" is one 15oz can sweetened condensed milk to two 1oz
    squares of unsweetened baking chocolate. For your half can use one 1oz
    square. Melt the chocolate in a pan over low heat, then stir in the SCM.
    That's pretty much it.

    It's good in a nice strong cup of coffee. My Mom wouldn't put half
    and half or cream in her coffee, only
    Carnation Evaporated Milk.

    One more method -- pour the condensed milk into a crockpot. Cook it
    on low until the milk is thick and caramellized.

    My brother in law would do the same. Personally, I can't stand the stuff
    and would never use it in anything. As for coffee, I can handle a little
    cream in it but prefer it black. No milk thanks, and certainly not
    evaporated milk.

    Melt some semisweet chocolate chips and stir until smooth; add the
    condensed milk for a chocolate topping for ice cream. Stir in a liqueur
    if it suits you. Thin with milk if it's too thin for your tastes.

    But, but, but. . . . she has condensed milk, not evaporated milk. :-(
    Hmmmm, I wonder if you could just use condensed milk in coffee instead
    of milk and sugar.

    Yessss! It's a pretty quick sauce to make, too.

    Surely you're thinking of evaporated milk (no sugar), VannčI can't
    imagine condensed milk in mashed potatoes.. Condensed milk has sugar in
    it and is thick and viscous. Evaporated milk pours like heavy cream
    (maybe 4% butterfat?)

    It's good in Thai tea.

    Unsweetened condensed milk is simply evaporated milk without the sugar
    added.
