Tip #1

No need to add sugar to the filling in this easy bar. Sweetened condensed milk is a mixture of whole milk and sugar. Water is evaporated off the milk before canning, making a sweet and sticky product. Store unopened sweetened condensed milk at room temperature for up to 6 months. After opening, refrigerate any unused milk in an airtight container and store for no more than 5 days.
