Ah, the simple pleasures in life. Music. Birdsong. Friends and family. Condensed milk.

[passes spoon]

I have taken to buying it in squirty bottles so I don't end up 'finishing off' half-eaten cans quite so often.

You and my dh can sit there in your sticky-faced guilt together. I went to my mums for five days and he ate two cans. TWO. [and he wasn't sick]

tee hee
you'll be on a sugar rush after that...'tis the sweetest substance known to man

SpawnHorcrux Wed 01-Aug-07 11:30:55

Mrs Badger - you didn't need to tell me that Sometimes ignorance is bliss y'know.

SpawnHorcrux Wed 01-Aug-07 11:32:11

Jaynehater - wow! [awe]

jaynehater Wed 01-Aug-07 11:32:53

Just out of interest - where did the other half go?

jaynehater Wed 01-Aug-07 11:33:40

I know Spawn - he is a filthy sugar whore.

I didn't think he knew where I kept them - this is not his first offence.....

CatIsSleepy Wed 01-Aug-07 11:35:12

just out of interest..what do people do with condensed milk other than eat it straight out of the can?

- that is not envy, but a vomit emoticon.

make banoffi pie with it[dreamy sigh]

CatIsSleepy Wed 01-Aug-07 11:37:08

oh <enlightenment dawns> thanks janitor.
I never make puddings, that explains my ignorance...

lulumama Wed 01-Aug-07 11:37:31

i like it in really strong coffee!

jaynehater Wed 01-Aug-07 11:38:12

Make tablet.

And assorted puddings that required eating in one sitting.

Or just boil it, in the unopened can, for yum caramel sauce.

But mostly, eat it from the can, you're right.

SpawnHorcrux Wed 01-Aug-07 11:39:02

I made vanilla ice-cream with the other half. Mmmmmm.

SpawnHorcrux Wed 01-Aug-07 11:39:52

Tablet? How how??? Love tablet. [sugary drool]

MrsBadger Wed 01-Aug-07 11:40:21

spread it on toast
(if it's good enough for Winnie-the-Pooh...)

SpawnHorcrux Wed 01-Aug-07 11:42:07

<<spawn's sofa creaks ominously>>

MaryAnnSingleton Wed 01-Aug-07 11:43:59

what, you eat it out of a can ? isn't that a bit gross ? I always want to buy a tin but never know what to do with it (apart from banoffee pie and now that comes ready boiled in the tin)

lulumama Wed 01-Aug-07 11:45:20


MaryAnnSingleton Wed 01-Aug-07 11:46:34

Oh tablet - yum !

arfishy Wed 01-Aug-07 11:47:44

Condensed milk? Out of a can?

Arfishy confesses to secret milk of magnesia fetish. I feel my tastes are perhaps more savoury.

Enjoy! [feels queasy]

tis the bastard offspring of fudge and Kendal Mint Cake

jaynehater Wed 01-Aug-07 11:48:38

Melt 1/2 lb butter/marg ( I use butter, in for a penny...)in a pint of water in a non-stick pan. (V. important, that bit)

Add (prepare yourself) 4lbs of sugar.

Stir like billy-o so it doesn't catch

Once it's boiling, add the condensed milk, simmer for about 20 mins, keep stirring.

Then (this is where you sweat off some calories in preparation for eating) take off the heat *and beat it and beat it and beat it* for at least five minutes. You can add flavourings at this stage - vanilla, peppermint, etc if wanted.

Chuck it in a greased tin, and if you want it in regular shapes, cut it when it's partly cooled.

Enjoy. Your arms will hurt for near a year, though.

And you'll gain a stone.

1 can of devil's brew (I think it's about 400g but I can't check as we are, temporarily, depleted)
