Hint for Caramel




Really, caramel. I have always heard that putting a can of Eagle brand milk in a crock pot creates caramel. I didn't believe it.
Until now.
I decided to try it out Sunday afternoon for a group event on Monday night. I left the can in the crock pot for 4 hours on high (you can do 8 on low if you want) and then stuck it in the refrigerator overnight. Last night I checked it, fully expecting a can of milk still.
Nope! It was a lovely golden color and tasted delicious with some Macintosh apples. I was so excited! This is perfect for this time of year, super cheap compared to buying caramel, and it's a very tasty treat.
Also, with the holiday season coming up, you can pour it into a pretty jar and decorate it for an inexpensive gift for coworkers, teachers or anyone you run across that could use a sweet treat (and who couldn't really?)
