Dulce de Leche Casero (Homemade Dulce de Leche)
• 122 cubic inches of milk
• 1 vanilla pod
• 20 ounces of sugar
In a casserole, put all the ingredients together. Cook them until boiling point. Keep stirring continuously with a wooden spoon. (In former recipes, it was advised to stir the preparation with a fig tree branch to give it a special flavor.) Lower the heat and continue cooking until it gets so thick that if it is put on a plate, the preparation would not slide. Remove from fire and place the casserole over another casserole containing cold water and stir until it is cold. For a more intense color, add a pinch of baking soda while cooking.
