Dulce De Leche/Milk Jam

Dulce de leche, a sweetened caramelized sauce is prepared with sweetened milk by cooking slowly in a heavy bottomed pan for few hours. The most easy and short cut method for making this yummy milk jam is using sweetened condensed milk. I wanted to share this fingerlicking sauce recipe since a long, i prepared this dulce de leche sauce last sunday and then later i prepared an eggless ice cream using them. I'll be posting my version of this fabulous dulce de leche icecream very soon.

This dulce de leche is called confiture de lait in French, french people use this sauce as spread in their bread,serve along with fromage blanc,a soft cheese.. This sauce can be used for making cakes,muffins,cookies and also for frosting cakes.You can make many delicious foods using this dulce de leche.I used my pressure cooker for making this dulce de leche, it took almost an hour for me to get ready.You can also make them using a heavy bottomed vessel very well..The cooking time will go for 3-4hours.Sending to Jagruti's Celebrate JCO~~Diamond Jubliee..



1can Sweetened condensed milk

Remove the label of the can, if its possible, place the can in a pressure cooker, cover it fully with water,

Heat the pressure cooker in high flame.Once the water starts boiling,put the flame in simmer and cover the cooker with the lid. Dont put the weight.

Let it sit in medium flame for atleast an hour with lid closed (check frequently the water level,while checking dont open the lid immediately, keep them away from the flame and check it out..in case if the water is less than the top of the can do fill it and put back to the flame in simmer), the more you cook the more the colour of the sauce will be dark.

Put off the stove. Keep aside for 4-5hours until it cools completely.

Open the can's lid and enjoy with your favourite food.

Hey I wanted to try this aswell, but never dared. Do you literally place the cooker lid lightly or turn it to close it (without whistle of course)

Priya said... Reply To This Comment

Nope,Preeti the lid should be closed tightly..
