A few years ago when we visited Argentina, we fell in love with dulce de leche. Ever tried it? It's similar to caramel, but it's milky and creamy and wonderful. In fact, there are entire grocery store aisles devoted to it.
In Okinawa, it's a little bit impossible to find, as you can imagine. But I did discover how to make my own. It's super easy, in fact. Take a can of sweetened condensed milk, pour it into a glass pan, and bake it at 425 degrees in a water bath for about an hour and a half.
Since it's been super hot and humid here (perfect weather for lazily eating ice cream), I thought I'd try making Dulce de Leche Ice Cream using the same technique from Challenge 20 .
First, I made the dulce de leche as described above. Then I mixed it with a can of evaporated milk and froze it for several hours, stirring every so often. How easy is that? Again, only two ingredients!
Amazing...you seriously have to try this!
