This caramelized dessert sauce originated in Argentina but is now beloved all over the world.

Yield: Makes 8 servings
Prep time: 5 Mins<Br>
Cooking time: 3¼ Hrs<Br>


  • 3 qts (3 liters) whole milk
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar


1. Bring the milk and sugar to a boil in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Stir in the vinegar; the milk will curdle.

2. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer 3 hours, or until the liquid has evaporated entirely and the sauce is toffee-brown. Let cool completely.


Good with vanilla ice cream or fresh fruit such as sliced bananas or fruit compotes.

Leftovers can be stirred into slightly softened vanilla ice cream and refrozen.
