PharmKY saidI have addiction problems with PB. It is like, seriously my cocaine. But maybe I could go back to freezing tablespoons of it for a quick sugar fix. Thanks!
Then you don't EVER want to taste dulce de leche.
It will call your name for the rest of your life.
Seriously, try eating carrot sticks. You'll get your sweet and it will be healthy too.
Just don't dip them in PB or dulce de leche.
Suggestions for the dulce de leche addicts:
1) If you cook it the normal way, in the can for hours in a boiling water bath, some people are concerned about chemicals in the can lining.
2) Instead of cooking it in a boiling water bath for several hours you can make it in a pressure cooker by cooking it for 30 minutes, in the can if you prefer. Also submerged in water, but on a trivet.
I used a regular stove top pressure cooker for several years but recently converted to an electric one (Fagor 6-in-1 I think it's called). The nice thing about the electric one is that it has a timer and shuts off after the timer expires, and goes into a keep tasty hot mode.
I make my dulce de leche by scooping out the sweetened condensed milk (scd) into a metal bowl which I then cover with foil, and then put in the pressure cooker which has a trivet in it, with enough water around the bowl to come up to the level of the scd. Set the timer for 30 minutes, and after it cooks let it sit and release the pressure (about 15 minutes), walla, ready to go.
The next batch I'm going to try jacking up the milk content by adding a tablespoon or two of powdered milk and mixing well with an electric hand mixer. I'm also wondering what it would be like to add a tablespoon or so of melted butter and mixing well. Both of these will be added before cooking. The mind boggles at the possibilities.
