Caramel Magic!

This week I tried out a recipe I found on TikTok. While exploring the platform a few weeks ago I saved this video because it looked super easy and great for beginners. Also who doesn’t love caramel sauce!?

TikTok account I found this recipe from

All of the canning recipes I have tried have been SO time consuming. This was something I didn’t anticipate when I chose this for my learning project. It is very time consuming and all the prep work takes awhile. So I was excited to try this one because although it took 3 hours to cook, the prep time was less than 5 minutes! With just sweetened condensed milk in a water bath, I created some delicious caramel sauce! I couldn’t believe how easy it was- it was almost magic! The slow heat was enough to caramelize the milk and make it the perfect consistency. The only thing I wish I had done differently was used smaller jars. I only had 500ml jars so it required a lot more water in order to immerse the jar. This resulted in the cooking time being more than 3 hours because it took so long to boil. As you can see my kids also loved it! Apple slices and caramel might be their new favourite snack.

    1. Haha thanks! Well I must admit I had more plans for canning than actually happened- I wasn’t prepared for how time consuming just once recipe is.
