Sous Vide Dulce de Leche

Anova Culinary

Dulce de Leche is a magical, super-sweet sauce made by slowly heating sweetened condensed milk, so the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker is the perfect way to do it. We put the milk into a canning jar and sealed it (so we could watch the transformation from cream-colored to a deep golden brown), but you could also just cook it straight in the unopened can. We recommend serving it over ice cream, but it’s good with just a spoon, too.
