Milk Jam

Today I made Milk Jam, or Dulce de Lech. It's very easy. You take a quart of milk, some sugar, some vanilla, and a bit of baking soda, and then, over the next few hours, reduce it to a thick, caramel-like sauce.

I have not had any success the few times I've tried to make caramel, but this has worked every time. Only trick is the recipe says you'll get one cup, and I got exactly two cups. I can't imagine boiling it down any thicker than I did. 

It's very thick! If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I never would have guessed that came from milk and sugar. Now to find some desserts to use it on :)

oooh, I may have to try that... It would be wonderful on baked apples... and it's almost apple season, ya know.
