One-Step Dulce de Leche
- 1 can condensed milk
To make the dulce de leche: peel off the label of the sweetened condensed milk cans, then place the unopened can in a pot. Add enough water to cover the can and bring the water to a gentle boil over medium heat, then reduce the heat to low. While the water is simmering, make sure that there is always enough water to cover the can; if there isn’t, add more water. Let the can simmer in the pot for 1 ½ hour.
Use tongs to turn the can and simmer it for another hour. After this, turn off the heat and let the can come to room temperature, still sitting in the water. Once the can has cooled completely, open it with a can opener.
