I have been making my own homemade sweetened condensed milk for a while now wanting to save money and really, it’s such a simple thing to make, it seems silly to buy it! Choosing exactly what ingredients I put into recipes means I can choose what those ingredients have or don’t have added to them….and since we’ve always got milk in our refrigerator anyway, why not make our own sweetened condensed milk for recipes to have on hand? We love using top quality ingredients in our recipes at home, and when DairyPure reached out to ask if we’d make something with their milk, my first thought was to do a simple recipe that can be used in many ways.
Dairy Pure comes from cows only fed a healthy diet, it is continuously quality tested to ensure purity, and it is also backed by an exclusive 5 Point Purity Promise (no growth hormones, tested for antibiotics, continuous quality testing, healthy diet for the cows, and cold-shipped from your local dairy). That makes me feel even better about the products I make from scratch, knowing that I can put the best ingredients available in it for my family.
