Default Stocking Sweetened Condensed Milk

1300 calories for $1.49.

I'm going to start piling this up in the pantry.

Read somewhere that civil war soldiers were issued this for the calories.

Huge calories for cheap and it beats the heck out of milk and sugar in my coffee in the morning.

For best results, turn the cans over every six months ( shake while turning ).

This goes for any canned milk.

Lasts in the can a lot longer than evaporated milk, for some reason.

It's the high sugar content.

OP, if you ever want a nice treat and mix things up try making Dulce de Leche from it. Super easy to do. You will thank me later.

FYI, if you put the whole can in boiling water for 4 hours it makes a damn good carmel.

Turning them over and shaking them works until the can rusts through. In my experience it will be between 6-10 years.

I wonder if they make sweetened condensed Goat Milk ? It would probably be healthier than cow milk .

This is some good info. I keep a small stock of condensed milk normally. I don't use much milk maybe one small can a week, two if I bake some stuff. I never knew to turn the cans over, will have to do that when I rotate stock. I'm the kinda guy that if I use one, then I buy two more next trip in case I forgot to on my last trip to the store. For a single guy I have a pretty fair amount of canned goods stocked away. I'll pick up some of the sweetened for reasons mentioned.

Funny thing about that, I usually pick up a can or three of mushrooms every time I go to the market(and an onion or two). Hey, I like mushrooms. I noticed that they didn't have much on the shelf. Got home and put everything away and realized that I have more cans of shrooms in my cupboard than they have at the store. hey, was cheap entertainment for that moment anyway.

Yeah you should be shot for that. Goats milk is absolutely foul stuff.
