Scrambling to finish the Thanksgiving baking, I scoured the shelves for the last precious can of evaporated milk. As was my luck, it expired in 2008. There wasn't time to run to the store but fortunately, I'd noticed a rose colored sticky note posted on my mother's kitchen wall. It contained a simple recipe for evaporated milk substitute. Phew!
Combine: 2/3 cup powdered milk 3/4 cup (8oz) warm water
Dissolve completely and substitute as needed in recipes.
