Caramelising condensed milk...... banoffee pie

b190, Jul 25, 11:56pm
Pak n save didn't have any of the caramel condensed milk. Can you just use regular condensed milk? I've googled how to caramelise it (put unopened tin in boiling water and let boil for 2 hours) Does that sound right? TIA.

Ok thanks:) I feel nervous leaving anything boiling for 3 hours! lol The tin won't explode?

Be sure to keep the can COMPLETELY covered with water during the whole time that it is being boiled and to reiterate harrislucinda's advice.....because the contents are dangerously hot, the can must be cooled before being opened.:-))

Not if it is COMPLETELY covered with water at all times - top the water up, if necessary, with boiling water from the electric jug/kettle.:-))

Do I keep the heat up at high the whole 3 hours? Or turn it down to halfway once it's boiling? Sorry for the dumb question. I've never done anything like this and I REALLY want banoffee pie tonight:)
