Whether you call it caramel or dulce de leche call it easy and delicious with this stellar recipe!
Bring a deep pot that you’ve filled with water to a boil (make sure there is enough room in the pot to fit the can(s) into it. I use my large canner pot so I can cover the tin cans with about 3 inches of water. It works great!
Once boiling, carefully immerse the can(s) of unopened sweetened condensed milk into it. Cover the pot and slowly boil/simmer for 2 to 3 hours making sure that the pan does not boil dry.
Carefully remove the tin(s) from the water and allow them to cool completely before opening. Inside you will find the soft toffee filling.
* A note of caution: It is absolutely vital to top off the pan of boiling water frequently during the cooking of the cans. 2 to 3 hours is a long time and if they are allowed to boil dry the cans will explode causing a grave risk to life, limb and kitchen ceilings.

I typically do 3 or 4 cans in a large pot at one time. Unopened they will stay on the pantry shelf for up to one year.
Running a TexMex restaurant on a small island off Panama, I had to come up with my own seasoning blend to spice my pinto beans for a side and refried beans. This blend of spices worked perfectly! Delicious smoky flavor! Just add onion and pork! I reduced the original recipe because you probably don’t need to spice 10 pounds of beans!
Even 87 year old Grandmas have tricks up their sleeve! After trying this jam for the first time and loving the “fresh” strawberry taste and perfect hint of rhubarb, I was in for a big surprise when she let me in on her secret ingredient!
