I pick up a can of evaporated milk every time I do my weekly grocery shopping. It is very inexpensive and good to have on hand. It can be used in place of light cream in recipes, in place of milk (my mother always made her rice pudding substituting a can of evaporated milk and I still make it that way!)

You could add some butter to the milk you have.

So what you really need is a substitute for evaporated milk. This one is easy and will work in most recipes. You will need to have 3/4 cup of whole milk and mix it with 1/4 cup of half and half.

Just keep in mind this will work in most recipes but not in all. If you are making candy I would not use this and would actually go to the store to buy the evaporated milk.

Condensed milk can be substituted for whole milk in some recipes. Since condensed milk contains a lot of added sugar it may not always be the best choice.
