Or get a tin of Nestle Condensed Milk and simmer the entire sealed tin in a pot of water for 3 hours - it'll turn into caramel

Love the tin Caramel. Use it in Muffins.
your method is probably better babytears.

Caramel What!

Sauce, squares, fudge, slices etc.

If sauce - prefer butterscotch sauce.

If squares or fudge - look in the thread "Confectionery", likewise slices in "Slices".

To make caramel like the stuff in the tin - get one can of sweetend condensed milk (do not open).Place the unopened can in a saucepan almost covered with water.Bring to the boil and simmer for 2 hours (ensure that there is always water in the saucepan eg keep topping up with boiling water from the kettle).After 2 hours, cool.Then open.Yummy caramel!

How long will caramel last once you have cooked it without opening it! Where do you store it frig or pantry. Going to try this the caramel condensed milk is alot more $$ than regular condensed milk.

I have used this a lot and have never waited for it to cool completely, just until cool enough to handle.No explosions.Off topic, but here's what I use it for:

Moa Droppings
Stand 1 tin condensed milk in boiling water for 1½ -2 hours.When partly cool empty contents into basin with
1 pkt crushed wine or arrowroot biscuits
1Tbsp cocoa
Vanilla essence
2 crushed weetbix
About 125gm sultanas (or any other dried fruit, nuts)
Mix well, roll into balls and roll in coconut.Refrigerate to set.(Better next day).
