Yield: about 4 cups
15 ounces canned condensed milk
3 cups whole milk
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup dark brown sugar
¼ cup water
In small saucepan, stirring constantly, bring condensed milk, whole milk, and baking soda to a boil over high heat, and immediately remove pan from heat.
Put sugar and water into medium heavy-based saucepan, and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves. Stir in hot milk mixture and cook over very low heat for 1 to 1½ hours, stirring occasionally. The mixture becomes a thick amber-colored pudding when done.
