Mmm.... Yes Evaporated always keep a couple of tins for coffee, especially when camping, lovely and creamy and tastes good even when made up in a flask :-)


Cynthia Report 19 Jan 2013 09:10

Yummy....but messy in a sandwich Dizzi :-D

My son was actually brought up on evaporated milk and he is now a strapping 40 year old. I bet new mums would shudder at the thought - in fact - I doubt it would now be allowed.

My grandson had a phase of putting condensed milk on his ice cream... :-S

Hope you are feeling better.

Cythia a lady i work with brought her daughter up on evaporated milk, she said there was some kind of media attention on the standard baby milk at the time and was advised by the midwife to use evaportated milk. :-D

Love condensed milk and evaporated milk, often prefer it to cream on pies and crumbles, not that we have many now as o.h. is diabetic so I end up eating too much lol

Condensed milk was sold in tubes a few years ago I think, I could happily eat the lot so I just don't buy it! My son's nan in Malta always served tea with evaporated milk, never quite tasted right but it was that or nothing. I suppose it's what she was used to, maybe only that when the Malta siege was going on, if any milk at all, she was just a teenager then.

Now you've made me fancy some evap. milk Gwen.

Evaporated milk is horrible.

Used to have it on pudd'n' but when i tried it recently I wondered why I ever did.

Take the top right off your condensed milk tin and tip the contents into the liquidiser,fill up the tin with single cream and tip it into the liquidiser,then fill it with whiskey and do the same.Put in a teaspoonful of instant coffee and give it a whizz.

Like Cynthia my children were all given evaporated milk for top-ups and when they were weaned - in 1960s Dr Spock was our only guide and I don't think he suggested anything else!


JustJohn Report 19 Jan 2013 09:42

Condensed milk. Urgghh. Used to hate sterilised milk too (the one in a pop bottle that you had to open with a bottle opener). Always had a laugh when young Harold Steptoe was planning to impress a girl friend with tinned peaches and condensed milk as a desert.

Condoms? Will only comment under duress :-) ;-)


AnninGlos Report 19 Jan 2013 09:44

I find condensed milk too sweet but when we were kids we never had cream we always had peaches with ideal milk for Sunday tea in the 50s. Didn't have cream until I first went to Devon with my OH to visit his family and took home some Devon clotted cream.

In the 60s I had a foster baby who was very tiny (5 punds) and he had to be fed every 2 hours on small amounts of watered ideal milk.

Stilloccasionally have ideal milk but UHT cream keeps for ages so usually have that in.

Oh my god l love condensed milk:))) l bought a small tin of evap milk the other day, not used it yet though, be lovely on banana's and sugar:)

My daughter was also brought up on evap milk, my sister told me about it as her son was only 4lbs when born and was fed on it. My daughter would'nt settle with powdered milk and me boobs had run dry:( By the time son was born evap milk was a no no:((
