Hi does anyone know how long you can keep the dressing in the fridge for please? I mix condensed milk, vinegar and a little mustard together. So yummy on salad but have no idea how long it will stay ok in the fridge.

I've had mine in the fridge for weeks and I'm still ok lol

Reassured anything with vinegar in its a natural preservative. I make mine up and leave it in the fridge for ages especially during the winter months. Believe me it will keep for a good 12 months or more.

I love it and use a lot of it this time of the year so never around for long but I find it's a good keeper.

Seems to last forever. Some I have in the fridge I made last summer. I think with the high content of sugar/vinegar it is possibly to keep for some time.

Condensed milk? ! It's sugar! 56grams per 100mls.
That's about 14 teaspoons.
That must be so nasty. never mind the unhealthy.

How about a dressing instead?

Oh bah Humbug. who the hell eats the whole jar at once, you only need a couple of teaspoons at one time!

Some of the dressings in the supermarket are loaded with sugar as well or fat and god knows what other chemicals. At least if i make it at home I have an idea of what is in it and I only have a spoon on my salad.

Unless you're my husband who eats half the jar at a time!

The condensed milk recipe is one from long long ago, my mum used to make it, it can be diluted a bit as well by adding milk still seems to keep forever.

Is keeps for months as long as you keep it in the fridge

cutezie, Dec 11, 8:12am
How do you make it, ?

tazdevil38, Dec 11, 8:23am
Adding malt vinegar to condensed milk. I don't measure the vinegar, just pour in what I think is about right lol

That was the only kind of salad dressing we knew in the 1950s & 60s.

Pour condensed milk into a container put about third of the amount of malt vinegar to condensed milk and a tablespoon of mustard which is optional. Mix together. Put in fridge easy and very yummy. Just add malt vinegar to taste ie add more if too sweet.

best tasting dressing ever .and its kiwi. ditch the rest, keep the best .

I keep mine for months. If it gets too thick from standing put a little more vinegar in. The best dressing out.

cutezie, Dec 12, 6:26am
Thanks for the how to do

Milk is good for thinning it just before use, if needed. Doesn't make it too acidic.

I've been adding a small amount of curry powder along with the mustard and vinegar. I don't have actual amounts of mustard, curry powder and vinegar do it all by taste test.
The family really like it.

I made my Mum's boiled salad dressing yesterday. Was reading this thread and decided to make it instead of the condensed milk one. Doubled the recipe and it keeps for ages. 2 tab butter,, 4 tab sugar, creamed together add 1 tsp mixed mustard, 1/2 tsp salt and then add in 2 eggs then gradually add in a cup of malt vinear slowly while bringing to the boil, stirring all the time. Once boiled and thickened let cool and keep in lidded jar in fridge. An oldie but a goodie
To make a lovely dressing for prawns add cream and paprika and some lemon juice.

recipe please, I remember this when i was a kid. but it was never boiled. Would love to have this in my fridge

skydancing, Dec 13, 4:49am
Caspm if you mean the boiled dressing I have included the recipe in my post above. It is quick and easy to cook and we always boiled it. Cheers
