Evaporated milk is essentially milk in which 60% of its water content has evaporated. It is a heavier tasting milk with a caramelized flavor, making it great for desserts and teas or coffees. When initially made or opened (in a can), evaporated milk can last for up to a week if refrigerated. If you can’t find it at your local store, you can easily make it at home with only whole milk.

Similar to evaporated milk, condensed milk is also concentrated milk in which 60% of its water content has evaporated. The major difference between evaporated milk and condensed milk is the sugar content – condensed milk is always sweetened while evaporated milk is unsweetened.

Steps

1
Done

Pour 1 cup milk in a small pot. Place a wooden skewer in the pot and mark where the top of the milk touches the skewer. Remember this mark as it is the 1 cup mark after 60% of the content has evaporated and is when you know the evaporated milk is ready.

2
Done

Remove the skewer and add the remaining milk.

3
Done

Bring milk to a boil over medium heat, then turn heat to low and simmer until content has been reduced from 2 1/4 cup to 1 cup. Every few minutes stir milk and discard the skin that forms on the top of the milk.

4
Done

When milk is reduced to 1 cup, remove from heat and strain. Use immediately or store in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
