Evaporated milk is regular milk that has been heated and reduced until most water evaporates. This process also makes it a great non-perishable ingredient to always have in one's pantry.

Evaporated milk is perfect for creating cozy, creamy, sweet, and savory recipes. In savory dishes, evaporated milk can be used to create creamy sauces or soups. In sweet dishes, evaporated milk can be used to make creamy desserts like ice cream, pudding, or cheesecake.
