What is Dulce De Leche ? How is Dulce De Leche prepared ?
Dulce de Leche is a South American sweet spread made from sugar and boiled milk. Literally meaning “milk sweet”.
Dulce de leche is a confection prepared by slowly heating sweetened milk to create a product that derives its taste from the caramelisation of the product, changing flavor and color. Literally translated, it means “candy of milk” or “candy [made] of milk”, “milk candy”, or “milk jam” in the same way that dulce de frutilla is strawberry jam. It is popular in South America, notably in Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil and Paraguay. The same goes for Chile and Ecuador where it is known as manjar. In Peru, Colombia and Venezuela, it is referred to as manjar blanco or arequipe, depending on regional variations. In Brazil, it is known by its Portuguese name doce de leite.
