Homemade Condensed Milk (with a Soy Milk Version, too.)

All you need is soy milk (or regular milk) and sugar.
Easily made by just simmering in the microwave.
Of course, you can also simmer it in a sauce pan, if you prefer.

Ingredients: 1/2 cup (100 ml)

Milk or soy milk
1 cup (200 ml)
Granulated sugar (or regular white sugar. You can also try it with beet sugar or cane sugar, although it will be brown.)

1. Since the milk tends to bubble out of the container, combine the milk and sugar in a large-sized heat-resistant bowl.
2. Microwave for 10 minutes at 600W. If the milk rises up to the top of the bowl and is about to spill out, open the microwave and stir.
3. Microwave for 5 to 6 more minutes. Once the soy milk has reduced by 1/2, it's ready! Even if it's runny when hot, it will thicken once it cools down.
4. If it hasn't simmered enough, adjust the microwave time accordingly. It will thicken when cool. After it cools, transfer to a jar; It will keep in the refrigerator for 10 days.
5. Using a sauce pan Simmer on low heat while stirring to prevent burning. For those who dislike the smell of soy milk, add some vanilla extract.
6. Mix your homemade condensed milk with butter to make condensed milk butter, spread it on a baguette, and enjoy.
