Dulce de Leche or Confiture de LaitAdapted from The Perfect Scoop (Ten Speed Press)
Preheat the oven to 425° F (220° C).
Pour one can (400 gr/14 ounces) of sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk) into a glass pie plate or shallow baking dish. Stir in a few flecks of sea salt.
Cook in a bain-marie. Set the pie plate within a larger pan, such as a roasting pan, and add hot water until it reaches halfway up the side of the pie plate.
Cover the pie plate snugly with aluminum foil and bake for 1 to 1¼ hours. (Check a few times during baking and add more water to the roasting pan as necessary).
Store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Warm gently in a warm water bath or microwave oven before using.
Dulce de Leche Liquor
1 cup vodka
2 cups cream (I used 33% fat)
Measure ingredients into a clean jar. Mix well and chill. Store in the fridge. This is so very rich and boozy so would ideal served over ice or with your coffee.
