Made from milk that has had most of its water content removed, condensed milk's usage dates all the way back to the 13th century. But instead of being used for making delicious desserts, it was often mixed with water to simply make conventional milk. The utility of the product came from being able to easily carry gallons’ worth of milk in a small container.
For those who love cooking and have a sweet tooth, condensed milk is a must-have in the kitchen. Everything from puddings to flan needs this ingredient to give it that sweet, creamy taste. However, condensed milk can be used for completely different applications when boiled. As this video demonstrates, the simple process of boiling can lead to delicious results.
