To make Sweetened Condensed Milk from Powdered Milk

You’ll need:

* 2 tablespoon Butter (melted)
* 2 drops vanilla flavor(optional)
* 1 cup Water

* Boil the water until it’s hot and begins to bubble a bit. Then pour into a blender.

* Pour the milk and sugar into a deep pan or heavy-bottomed pot, bring to a boil over medium heat(it should not bubble).

* As it begins to boil, reduce the heat  to low and let the milk simmer until the quantity in the pot reduces to half it’s original size, this takes about 2 hours on low heat.

* Stir the milk from time to time, so that it does not form a white coat at the top. 

Stirring frequently will also prevent it from burning and changing in color.

* After about 2 hours, you’ll notice the milk is thicker. Then add the butter and keep on stirring for 20 seconds, until  the butter is well incorporated.
Put off the heat and leave to cool before transferring into a sterilized air tight container. Store in the fridge and enjoy.
