Dulce de Leche
- 1/2 gallon of whole milk
- 2 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 vanilla pods
Add milk, sugar, and salt into a pot large enough that there are a few inches between the level of the milk and the top of the pot. Cut the vanilla pods lengthwise, scrape the seeds, and add to pot.
Turn heat on medium high, whisk or stir constantly until it comes to a full boil.
Turn the heat down to a low simmer, and continue to cook, uncovered for 3 hours. Stir about once every 10 minutes.
Remove vanilla pods. Pour into small jars and let cool. When cooled completely, place lids on jars and keep in fridge.
