I read this post last week on the Not Derby Pie website. I knew instantly that this was something I needed to make in the crockpot. A hundred million years ago when I first met Jenny, she told me about sweetened condensed milk and how amazing it was when you boiled it. I was pretty sure that she was nuts, but decided to try it anyway. I'm so glad that I did. Waiting the three hours for the cans to boil and then another hour or so for them to cool was a bit difficult for me.
Maybe I was pregnant?
I don't know. I remember being impatient.
I slept through my impatience this time. This is my first overnight dish that didn't suck. This rocks.
And Jenny shared with me this morning that the calories escape when you open the can. Who am I to argue with such logic?
DISCLAIMER: Eagle does NOT RECOMMEND heating their product in the can. I therefore don't recommend it either. So don't do it.
I have nothing to do with you eating delicious caramel pudding out of a can.
--2 cans (or more!) sweetened condensed milk
--lots o' water
--take label off cans
--put cans in the bottom of your crockpot
--add enough water to completely cover the can
--cover and cook on low for 8 hours
eat NOT out of the can.
The kids adored this (duh). I was pretty much a kitchen rock star. I did give them some apple slices though--I learned that from McDonalds.
