“So when I first found out how this carmel was made I said that there was no way that it could have been made out of a can that has been boiled for 3 hours. I got this recipe from my Mother in-law. I Love to bring this over to friends houses in just the can, and then open it up once we are ready to eat it for them to be in such shock that the carmel was made this way. Enjoy this Recipe just as much as I do as well as my family and friends.”
