Before I leave MN I have a really neat "trick" to share with you that Jenny and I did last night. My friend Mary Persinger Nease had this on her facebook page a couple of weeks ago. For years I have heard about boiling cans of sweetened condensed milk to make caramel. BUT....who wants to watch a can boil on the stove for three hours and be responsible for keeping the water level up and not burning down the house??? Not me!!! Well Mary came up with using the crock pot!! Ingenious!! Now you can make easy, breezy caramel sauce for all your favorite dippers or recipes during this autumn time of year. Nothing better than caramel to dip crisp apples, gingersnaps or pretzels into during the game or by the outdoor firepit!!
Here's how we did it:
Take 1 can of SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK....(not evaporated milk)
