Dulce de leche also known as caramelized milk or milk jam, is a confection from Latin America prepared by slowly heating sugar and milk over a period of several hours.
The resulting substance, which takes on a spreadable, sauce-like consistency, derives its rich flavour and colour from non-enzymatic browning. It is typically used to top or fill other sweet foods.
Vanilla and banana flavored cheesecakes topped with this fantastic milk jam and a sea of berries, blueberries and strawberries - it's fantastic!

For Dulce de Leche:
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, add 1 liter of milk and vanilla bean. Bring to a boil over medium heat. As soon as bubbles appear at the edges, add 250 g of sugar, a pinch of salt (I advise you not to regret it) and 1/2 tsp of soda diluted in 1 tsp of water.
Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring constantly, 60-90 minutes. Pour the finished sauce into a jar and let cool, in the cold it will become even thicker.
Can be used as a sauce for casseroles, cheesecakes, pancakes, as a filling for tarts, pies, add to creams. I highly recommend!
