    Preparation

    1. In a saucepan, collect the soy milk, add a teaspoon of cornstarch and mix thoroughly.

    Did you know that
    The original recipe calls for cooking milk with icing sugar, vanilla flavoring and thickening everything with a teaspoon of starch.
    In the vegetable version, we propose to use agave syrup: if you wish, you can use whole cane sugar but, in that case, the color of the finished product will tend to brown.
    The presence of starch allows us to speed up cooking times to thicken the milk more quickly.

    1. Taking care not to let the milk come out of the saucepan, keep a gentle boil, stirring occasionally for about 15 minutes.
    2. When finished, the condensed milk will appear quite thick: transfer the product into a glass jar and allow to cool completely. As the temperature drops, the milk will take on an even denser consistency.
    3. Condensed milk can be kept in the fridge for a couple of weeks. For a longer storage, you can follow the method of pasteurization of jams (boiling condensed milk must be poured into a sterilized glass jar and closed immediately with the respective screw cap, until vacuum-sealed. Pasteurized condensed milk can be keep for one year).

    Alice's comment - PersonalCooker

    The color obviously appears different due to the presence of soy milk. If you like a lighter color, you can replace soy milk with coconut milk or almond milk: in this way you will also give your condensed milk a personalized aftertaste.
