@ Maggie. Perfect lunch in my 'yoof' dripping on toast - the jelly from the bottom - followed by a condensed milk sandwich.

That brought back some memories,You could have been dining with my late husband he loved both of those too <3

One place I worked we used to make the coffee with condensed milk.

Not very keen on any sort of milk, so I now use almond milk for everything - less fat and sugar than semi skimmed, and tastes gorgeous!

Evaporated milk on tinned fruit salad, a Sunday treat in our house back in the 50's and 60's

My daughter mid 1960s just wouldn't get milk of any sort down her in sufficient quantities. My Father in Law suggested try bottles made up with Condensed milk - Problem solved. Used to be nice in sandwiches when I was a kid
