The best part about making your own version is that there’s no hidden preservatives and you know what you are consuming.

Homemade Condensed Milk Ingredients

  • 2 cups full fat milk or low fat milk
  • cups white sugar

Instructions For Making Condensed Milk

  1. In a heavy based saucepan add your milk and sugar
  2. On a low heat gently stir until sugar is full dissolved in milk.
  3. Simmer on a low-medium heat. Don’t stir when simmering.
  4. Simmer on gentle heat for 35-40 minutes until milk changes to a dark grey color and thickens and reduces by half.
  5. Skim off any foam that forms on top of mixture with a spoon.
  6. Remove from heat and pour into your jar. Any left over sugary pieces that may be around the rim of your pot must not be included. They can crack your mix.
  7. Cool your Condensed Milk completely prior to popping on your airtight lid.
  8. Label your jar and pop it in the fridge. It will last for months according to Gemma.
