Ingredients Percent (%) Grams Volume
Sweetened Condensed Milk 100 396.90 14 ounces
Total 100.00 396.90

Method of Production

Option 1 - Pressure Cooker Method

  1. Place the can(s) of sweetened condensed milk directly onto the bottom of the pressure cooker and add cold water to cover 1-inch over the top of the can (do not exceed the 'maximum capacity level' of the pressure cooker).
  2. Lock on the lid and heat over high heat until the cooker starts to whistle. Lower the heat, making sure the heat is still high enough for the pressure cooker to maintain the pressure.
  3. Cook for 40 minutes at high pressure (12 psi). Remove the pressure cooker from the heat, open the valve to allow release the pressure and steam
  4. Allow the can(s) to cool completely before using.

Option 2 - Stove Top Method  

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then carefully lower in the can(s) of sweetened condensed milk. Bring to a slow simmer.
  2. Cook for 4-6 hours, depending on color preference (5 hours produces a nicely caramelized dulce de leche).

Note: Opened cans will keep for 3 weeks covered in the refrigerator, unopened for up to 1 year. Alternatively, you may use a prepared dulce de leche and skip this step entirely.
