Have you ever used a can of (fat-free) evaporated milk and thought, I wonder how they make this? Ever looked at the back of the ingredients? It’s non-fat milk and dipotassium phosphate (water-soluble salt additive often used as an buffering agent, emulsifier and preservative. It’s used in evaporated milk to thicken it).
Skip the salt and make your own either by simmer it or buying non-fat dry milk powder.
Since I make my own condensed soup I buy a big box of non-fat dry milk, Wal-Mart’s brand.
Here’s how you can make your own:
2/3 cup non-fat dry milk powder
3/4 cup water
Mix milk and water (makes 1 cup)
simmer 2 1/4 cups of regular whole milk until it reduces to 1 cup
Use it anywhere that calls for evaporated milk!
There you have it!
Stay tuned for more Meal Plan Monday’s and as always, with every recipe I post, I do hope you love it!
