      Back during World War II, it used to be common practice to send cans of sweetened condensed milk to the men on the front lines. It was an easy way to send them a sweet treat. It's homemade caramel, in a can! A history and cooking lesson all in one.

Cook on the crock-pot's lowest setting for 8 hours. 4.Cool down in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Cooling the can is the key. You have CARAMEL! (and it tastes heavenly)
