Home Made Condensed Milk
I made this for no other reason other than I wanted to know I could!
There's a couple of recipes around. The easiest is this one:
1/3 cup hot water
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup powdered milk - this can be full cream or skim milk
3 tablespoons butter
Add all ingredients to Thermomix Bowl and blend for 3 minutes on speed 3 - 4.
The tastiest is this one:
1 litre whole milk
400g raw sugar
Place in the Thermomix bowl and cook on Varoma at speed 4.5 for 45 - 50 minutes.
The high speed is necessary or the milk will volcano out of the Thermomix. The MC needs to be in place to stop any extraneous spitting!
This tastes and looks like regular condensed milk. I used raw sugar, so the final result appears a bit darker than normal.
If cooked for longer, you will get caramelised Condensed Milk.
Here's a great mayonnaise recipe:
Mix 200g of the condensed milk with 125g white vinegar, 2 tsp dry mustard and 1/2 tsp salt. This is basic mayonnaise.
For a delicious Broccoli Salad Dressing, add 2 tsp wholegrain mustard, 1/2 cup yoghurt and juice of 1/2 a lemon.
