I had seen on sevearl of my canning sites on facebook about people making caramel from sweetened condensed milk, so of course I decided to give it a shot. I bought 3 cans of sweetened condensed milk and poured them into a bowl. I then added about a teaspoon of vanilla and stired it up. Filled 4 – 4oz jars and put them in the crock pot. I had started this project about 9am and finally took them out at 8:30pm. If I decide to do this again I am seriously going to find a different method. Right now they are cooling on the counter so I can not add if they came out good or not yet, but will definetly let you know when I do tasted it.
