Can a person make their own evaporated milk?
Jamish from Ransom, Kansas
I didn't know you could make your own evaporated milk! I tried this in a pumpkin pie and was surprised at how well it worked. The filling was not dry, but moist enough to retain that "just made" taste for several days. I won't be buying commercially canned evaporated milk again when this is so easy and SO inexpensive to make.
To make your own evaporated milk:
2/3 cup skim milk powder and 1 cup water OR 1 cup dry whole milk and 2/3 cup water. Mix well and use as directed in recipe.
2/3 cup evaporated milk = one 5 oz. Can.
1-1/2 cups evaporated milk = one 12 oz. can

I got this on this site : Sweetened Condensed Milk:
Mix together in your blender:
EVAPORATED milk which is entirely different than SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK. I found this out the hard way once when I had to serve a dessert for several women. The condensed milk does not have sweetener, the other does. (12/01/2007)
