    YUMMY

    Jennifer Lyons from Wyandotte, MI

    My neighbor made this by boiling the can for an hour. That didn't sound very safe, so I found this site and the recipe for the microwave works great. This is great for dipping apples and pears!

    Memories!

    Valerie K Sakelakos from JACKSONVILLE BEACH, FL

    This recipe brings back "sweet" memories of my mom and my gram making caramel in the can to the point of tears in my eyes--I am 63 so you see it WAS a long time ago. It never occured to me that I could OPEN the can and cook the milk either on the stove or in the microwave. Thank you for bringing back such sweet memories to me.

    FANTASTIC says it all!

    Ms. Blaschuk from FARMINGDALE, NY

    Using the microwave method, I made this to accompany a throw together dessert of brownies for drop-in company. I placed one brownie on each plate, drizzled some of this sauce over the top and around on the plate and sprinkled some chopped nuts on and around as well. Not only did it look like I had planned this elegant dessert for hours (NOT!) but it tasted great. QUICK, EASY and FANTASTIC! The best kind of recipe.

    Carmelized milk

    This is easy to do and this helps me when I am making candy, and tastes better.

    Yema is the equivalent of this in the Philippines

    Lory Tibbetts from Athens, ME

    Filipinos are so fond of using Carnation condensed milk. This recipe reminded me of the time when my mother would cook a can of it in steam, and we children would eagerly await for that golden caramel to cool down and would eat it as is, or pour on toast. If cooked further so that it becomes a bit drier, we often would wrap it in colored cellophanes shaped into triangles as yummy candies we called Yema, which is often used for gift-giving. Now I am in the US, my kids are getting their share of these goodies. This recipe that uses microwave to cook it worked as wonderful!

    So Easy to Do

    Michelle Wilson from Redding, CA

    This is one of the easiest ways to make carmel. I had a friend of mine show me this a few years back. Once you try it you will never buy carmel in a jar again.

    easy to do

    Melinda McMullin from Lutz, FL

    Not hard to do at all but creates a more topping type of caramel.

    Carmelized Milk

    Terri Horn from Lansing, MI

    I like using this idea in recipes rather than the ice cream toppings you buy. I feel I am giving my family a more wholesome product not just a flavored sugar concoction. And the microwave makes it a cinch.
