Popular for generations across the Spanish speaking cultures is the quintessential South American treat called Dulce de Leche. Translated roughly as “milk candy” it is much like a caramel sauce. One of my favorite ways to enjoy this sweet delight is spread over raisin bread toast.

There are a number of ways to make it, which range from microwaving a can of sweetened condensed milk to boiling whole milk and sugar for a few hours and stirring all the while. I have found the following recipe to be just the right blend of natural ingredients, cooking method, and taste.
