Dulce de Leche
Recipe from Not Without Salt
Start with a can of sweetened condensed milk. Make sure it's not just "evaporated milk", or you'll be disappointed indeed.
In a large pan, completely submerge the can of sweetened condensed milk in water. Make sure it is covered by at least one inch of water and remains covered throughout the entire process - this is VERY important otherwise it could explode. Cover the pan with a lid and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for three hours. Continually check to make sure the can is completely covered with water.Serve over ice cream, alongside cake, or simply with sliced fruit for dipping. Sweet!
