How to Make Evaporated Milk via Man Made
- Do the conversion! 2.25 oz. whole milk = 1 oz. of evaporated milk
- i.e. 13.5 oz. of whole milk will make 6 oz. of evaporated milk
- Use a heavy-bottom, nonstick pan and a rubber spatula
- Pour the desired amount of evaporated milk (which at this point is just milk) into the pan. Insert a wooden skewer or a clear drinking straw into the center of the milk-filled pan and mark with a fine-tipped sharpie or just make the marks on the pan.
- Add the remaining milk and begin the cooking process by patiently bringing the milk to a boil on medium-high heat, constantly stirring and scraping.
- As soon as the milk comes to a boil, turn the heat to low and begin the simmering procedure.
- A thin skin of will form on top of the milk, so removed the film before stirring every 5-6 minutes. Simmer until the milk reduces to the marked spot.
So what exactly is evaporated milk? It is dehydrated milk having 60% water removed. Wet unlike powdered milk. It is cooked down, thus, concentrated but not condensed. Basically, if you mix evaporated milk with some water it’s nutritionally equivalent to fresh milk.
