Microwave "dulce de leche"?
Just reading some user comments on an epicurious recipe and someone suggested the microwave as an alternative to boiling an unopened can of sweetened condensed milk (the idea of which makes me nervous). The instructions were very basic however - basically microwave the milk on medium heat and watch carefully. Has anyone done this? Approximately how long does it take? Any good?
I did some extensive testing on making Dulce de Leche last year. I posted my findings with photographs at the link below.
I found that, by far, the best DdL was made by the traditional method of long-cooking starting with fresh milk. The microwave version was plain old lousy.
