I shared a shortcut for ranch dressing mix and have been searching for many more shortcuts since then. Recently Loy posted a shortcut for sweetened condensed milk. It just so happens that I was trying to make fudge and had happened to have run out of sweetened condensed milk during the middle of NY getting a foot of snow dumped on us after it had rained all day and iced over. There was no way I was going to the store and I wanted to make another batch of fudge for my kids who can't eat peanuts/peanut butter yet. So thank you, Loy, for posting this! My kids were quite happy because of it :)
Recipe from Grandma Loy's Kitchen
What you need:
- 4 cups sugar, blended until super fine
- 1 can evaporated milk
- 1 cup dry nonfat milk
- 6 tbsp. unsalted butter
Cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and butter is melted.
Divide into thirds, 1 1/4 to 1 1/3 cups each, into mason jars.
Refrigerate overnight before using. It keeps up to 2 weeks in the fridge and 6 months in the freezer.
