How to Make Homemade Evaporated Milk
- The above amounts will make the equivalent of one 12 oz. can of evaporated milk. That being said, the following information will be of interest to you.
Evaporated milk is concentrated or reduced milk.
- Just double the ratio of powder to water. For the authentic taste full-cream whole milk powder should be used but skimmed could be used in a real pinch.
- To reconstitute evaporated milk back to regular milk it is diluted with an equal amount of water. With this in mind it is easy to make evaporated milk from milk powder.
- No milk powder? Simply reduce whole milk by half in a bain-marie (double-boiler). Voila!
