  • 2 14-ounce cans sweetened condensed milk


  1. Place unopened cans of sweetened condensed milk in a pot with enough water to cover the cans.
  2. Bring the water slowly to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer and let cook, covered, for 3-4 hours.
  3. Check occasionally to make sure the cans remain covered with water. Top off with more water as needed.
  4. Cool the cans before opening.
  5. Be careful! Make sure the cans are always covered with water, and that the hot water bath is simmering slowly to avoid the risk of the cans exploding.
