In Search of the Elusive Milk - Attempt #2

I was excited to find a can of condensed milk thinking I'd make myself some of that coffee with condensed milk without the trip to Chinatown. It seemed like the logical thing to do while I was desperate for coffee but would do anything but leave the house to buy milk.

With this milk, the condensed part was certainly a misnomer since it had expanded so much inside that both ends were bulging!!!!

When I opened the can it made a hissing noise. I was prepared to drain it down the sink as I did the other. Well, with an expiration date of 5/97 the draining of chunky milk time had well passed. The can was wrong!! It was condensed after all but unfortunately it was into a solid orangey mass!!

Does orange milk come from orange cows????

hmmm by the looks of it yes, if you were to smell it you would not think so any more!

I think you might be able to use this to make caramels fast since it's aleady a solid.

Only if you want to get botulism. I told Jeanine she should have saved it for me to try, but then realized it would have been a death sentence.
