    Homemade Dulce de Leche - Latin American caramel

    Dulce de leche, is a divine Latin American caramel. It's not hard to make.
    You can make it at home in a pressure cooker and a can of sweetened
    condensed milk.

    1 (14-oz) can of sweetened condensed milk, sealed - label removed

    Place can (with label removed) on its side in a pressure cooker.
    Cover can completely with water. Place lid on pressure cooker
    and bring up to pressure. Begin timing when pressure cooker
    reaches full pressure.

    For pour able caramel, cook under pressure for 20-minutes

    For spoon able caramel, cook under pressure for 30-minutes

    After desired time period, turn off heat. Let pressure fall naturally.
    When pressure is gone, open pressure cooker, place pressure cooker in sink
    and flush interior with cold water. Fill pressure cooker with cold water
    and let stand for a half hour to allow canned sweetened condensed milk to
    completely cool. Open can and enjoy.
