Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk

I bake a lot during the holidays and often use canned or sweet milk. My neat little neighbor lady gave this recipe to me that her mother gave to her. It is a money saver, especially since I always have a box of powdered milk in the house on stand-by.

This sounds like a really good recipe but what is the difference between oleo and margarine? Can butter be used?

I am wondering how you store this. I like the idea of having extra "cans" on hand but how long will this keep in the refrigerator? Can you freeze the extra in individual containers or do you need to use this right away? (07/23/2010)

If you ever find that you do not have sweetened condensed milk in your pantry, the substitute taste practically the same as the canned stuff.
