What is "evaporated milk"?
Evaporated milk is a concentrated form of milk that is created by heating regular milk to remove a significant portion of its water content. The process of evaporation gives the milk a thicker and creamier consistency, making it suitable for various culinary applications. It is commonly used as a substitute for regular milk in recipes, providing richness and depth of flavor. Evaporated milk can be used in both sweet and savory dishes, such as desserts, sauces, and soups, to enhance their taste and texture.
