Dulce de leche – homemade HaPå in pressure cooker

 Dulce de leche is the milk soup like home here probably most known as HaPå. Although the Hamar order (yes, it’s the full name) was a childhood favorite, both the wording and the taste of homemade dulce de leche are chopped more sophisticated than Mjøsa’s grandchildren. All you need to recreate the South American descent is a box of sweet condensed milk, a pressure cooker and water. What are you waiting for?
If you do not have pressure cookers, you can of course use a regular boiler. The only difference is that you have to calculate a cooking time of three hours to one hour in pressure cooker. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Remove the paper label on the canned box by holding the box under hot water. Then place the box with sweet condensed milk (not viking milk, because it is sugary and can not be caramelized) lying in the bottom of the pressure cooker and fill with water until the box is covered. The advantage of letting the box stand out is that it does not shake like that in the boiler when the pressure increases.
  2. Attach the lid to the pressure cooker and allow to boil. When you get full pressure and the boiler pipes, you reduce the heat somewhat. The pressure should still be on, but you do not have to run the full puppet.
  3. After 1 hour, remove the boiler from the heat and remove the pressure by holding the lid under running cold water. If you want a lighter and more fluid variant, quit the boiling process after 40 minutes. In the usual boiler, allow the box to boil under lid at slightly above medium high heat for 3 hours.
  4. Let the canned food cool in the boiler with cold water so that the cooling runs faster. Now the box can be opened and the sight of dark, thick and delicious caramelized dulce de leche is enjoyed. Also tasted, of course!
  5. Store the milk syrup on a sterilized dense glass (washed and heated for 15 minutes at 100 degrees in the oven) in a refrigerator. The order stays at least for three weeks, but I guess it will be eaten before that time.

If you wonder what the dulce de leche can be used for, I have no complete list. The order is very useful. Here are just a few suggestions:
  • In cookies, for example, replacing pure sweet condensed milk in these blueberry cookies
  • Like topping on oatmeal
  • Along with ice cream, yogurt or cottage cheese
  • As a surprising element in chocolate fondant
  • I brownies
  • On pancakes
  • On toasted bread
  • Together with the banana
