How was your St. Patrick's Day?
We kept it pretty low key around here since we are in crazy mode till the end of June.
If I am ever missing around here for awhile you'll know why, it's this thing I am in charge of called Stake Girl's Camp!! One of the awesome parts is that I get to be with 100 12-17 age girls AND I get to pick the head cook--which I am so excited about.
You know cause it's essential (in my world at least) to have great food while your camping. I don't think I could survive for 5 days with crappy food! I'm serious I might send myself home :)
But back to this sweet sauce. I finally bit the bullet and made some of this goodness myself. You see I have had it bookmarked and pinned to try for ages but have just not got around to it so I made myself do it. And guess what--it was super easy, at least the second time.
The first time I tried this method and it was an absolute failure (let me know if any of you have tried it that way--maybe I just messed up somewhere). No matter what, it would thicken and turn this beautiful brown color so I did what any great cook does....threw a fit and started over!
The next time I tried this version and it worked so much better. The dulce de leche was perfect and delicious, perfect to dip apple in. So yummy!!
Dulce de Leche
Note: You can cook 2-3 cans at a time if you wish.
1. Remove all labels from the can[s] of sweetened condensed milk. Place the can in a crock pot and fill water so the can is completely submerged. Cook on low for 8 hours, leaving lid on the entire time. Once done remove the can with tongs because the metal will be extremely hot. Let cool on cooling rack for 45-50 minutes and open carefully with a can opener. Serve with fruit, in frosting, in a pie, the possibilities are endless. Enjoy!
