Homemade Evaporated Milk


  • 3¾ cups (30 ounces / scant 1L) whole or 2% milk
  • Slow Cooker


  1. Before you begin, add 12 ounces of water to your slow cooker. Make a note of where the water line reaches (I use a ruler). This is where the milk level will be once your evaporated milk is ready. Discard the water before setting up the milk in your slow cooker.
  2. To make the evaporated milk, add the milk to your slow cooker. Set it to HIGH, and let the milk cook down, 8 to 10 hours, until it reaches the level you made note of with the water.
  3. Once the evaporated milk is ready, let it cool, and transfer to a glass jar. Store in the fridge until the sell by date of the milk you used to make it.
