Dulce de Leche (Milk Dessert)


2 litters whole milk

½ cup or 12 tbsp of sugar

5 tbsp lime juice

1 tbsp vanilla


Pour milk in a deep pot and cook on Medium high. After it starts boiling and after 5 minutes, add lime juice.  Wait 5 more minutes, add about 3 tbsp of sugar. Every 10 minutes, add about two to three tbsp of sugar. You can add less or more depending on personal taste.

After ½ hour cooking, add vanilla. Once the mixture turns into crumbs, remove from heat (don’t let it dry completely and don’t let it burn or turn brown). It should attain a golden color and be soft and moist, but not watery.

You can serve in a bowl or individual dessert dishes.
