I know a lot of us do not keep Sweetened Condensed Milk in your pantry. Recently I found a recipe from A Few Shortcuts that made me know I will never have to buy a can again.
Who knew sweetened condensed milk was so quick and easy to make?
Also named as sweetened condensed milk, it is a combination of cow’s milk and sugar.  Some of the water content of the milk is removed by evaporation. Along with sugar, this evaporation helps thickens the milk.
