I can’t express how thrilled I am to introduce you to my friend Nelly and her recipe for homemade condensed milk! Some of you already know her, but for those of you that don’t, go to her Facebook page and look at her amazing recipes! She has a unique style that makes all of her dishes fun… just like her! Today, she’s going to give you her recipe for homemade condensed milk. This is going to save you SO much money during the holidays!
Homemade condensed milk. Making it from scratch!?
Why would you even make it when it’s so easy to just buy a can and be done with it?
- It’s extremely easy!
- It’s cheaper (because these cans go for $2.50 at my local grocery store!)
- You’ll know exactly what’s in it!
When I heard my dear friend Becca was in search for a few guest posters, I jumped on the occasion. Becca is not only a fantastic food blogger and baker, but her heart is literally made out of gold, glitter, and unicorn tears. She’s always lending a helping hand, sharing with others her knowledge and just pouring SO much love into everything she does. It was only obvious I shared a new method I had just learned from my grandmother with It’s Yummi readers!
