You just chuck it in the pan of water [unopened] and boil for 3 hours. You’ll need to ensure you keep the can well covered with water though, so keep an eye on it and keep topping up as needed. If you don’t keep it topped up, it can explode as the water keeps the pressure in the can down being submerged. You can do this in the slow cooker too – same principal, but around 6 hours on low.

If you’re worried about doing it, try looking for the canned caramel (maybe labeled as Dulce de leche, depending on area). They’ve already done all the boiling work for you. 🙂 In my local grocery stores, it’s shelved right next to the sweetened condensed milk. I hope that helps.

Or am I supposed to open the can so it can release steam?
Thanks!

Our Mother’s and Grandmother’s never took any of the shortcuts we take for granted these days. It is really easy to boil the can, especially if the milk is cheaper to buy than the caramel, which it is here. I’ve actually gone as far as making my own sweetened condensed milk and boiled that to make caramel. It turned out great! I think next time I make some, I’ll be trying like your Mom made with the whipped cream and pecans – sounds delicious.

And yes, I can’t stress how important it is not to let the cans boil dry. And take great care not to burn yourself during the process. I found a way to combat this by using a slow cooker. It doesn’t boil dry so you can set it and forget about it (well, for 6-8 hours anyway).

Thanks for stopping by, Ann. Have a sweet day.

It keeps well on the shelf… She used to serve slices of just the carmel with real whipped cream and pecans.. I still do this- especially at Christmas time. Your recipe looks yummy …. NOTE- never let the cans boil dry. They do explode and it is horrid mess!
