Interested to know how you make sweetened condensed milk yourself....
You'd be surprised how many of the things I see in recipes here on CC that are impossible to find in Denmark; coffee dreamers, instant jello, pudding mixes, strawberry flavored gelatin, strawberry flavoured cream cheese, bettercreme, shortening, pumkin puree, and all those extracts always mentioned. I can get vanilla, almond and rum extracts.
Also pecans, macadamias and cashews are incredibly expensive because they have to be imported.
To make sweetned condensed milk you let 1 liter of whole milk and 300g of cane sugar simmer for about an hour over low heat till it is reduced to about 3/4. (Not sure if cane sugar is the right term, but it's what my dictionary says
Another thing about measurements is that everything here is weighed, all of my Danish recipes are in kilos and grams, liquids in litres and decilitre. It is quite easy to convert cups to grams, but not cans and packages. Thanks again.
