Ice cream, brownies, cookies, toast, a spoon: these are all things that are better with a little dulce de leche. Luckily for us, dulce de leche is a fancy name for a very simple, one ingredient recipe. All you need is a couple cans of sweetened condensed milk, a few small mason jars with lids, and some patience. Most recipes make dulce de leche by slow cooking sweetened condensed in the can in a water bath for hours. Using Suvie and jars gets rid of several problems that arise when using the canned method. First, there is no need to worry about cans leaching chemicals into your scrumptious dessert and second, you don’t have to worry about the cans exploding under heat and pressure. The jar method is not only practical, but also gives you perfect storage vessels to keep in the fridge or give away as gifts. Have Suvie cook a batch during your work day and enjoy this yummy sauce on anything you can think of tonight!
