Episode 72: Evaporated, Sweetened Condensed, and Powdered Milk

Monday, December 4, 2017
On this week's episode, we are figuring out what the differences are between evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk and their interesting beginnings. It always comes back down to eating safe prior to the 18th century. Also, we help our Food Fight listener navigate the leftover landscape at a holiday potluck dinner.

Let's taco 'bout it!

  • We've talked about on this episode about how back in the day, people drank beer because it was safer than the water. Milk was not safe to drink either.
  • Gail Borden patented his sweetened condensed milk. At one point in time, his company issued a press release, extolling the virtues of sweetened condensed milk and stating that Eagle brand was a health food.
  • John Myenberg went off on his own and made evaporated milk (or unsweetened condensed milk) and commercially produced it first.
  • Elbridge Amos Stuart is the founder of the Carnation, most famous for their evaporated milk, "Milk from Contented Cows".

  • Osip Krichevsky, Russian doctor, invented powdered milk in 1802.
  • Sharon used evaporated milk in this taco mac recipe from this episode, but you can use it in the ice cream found on the East coast that's chewier like we discussed in this episode. The evaporated milk acts as an emulsifier.
  • You should try Jell-O with evaporated milk--it's a treat from Winter's past!
  • We also help our Food Fight listener figure out what she can take as a leftovers at a family/friend party. It's like when our friend Leslie at So This is Love Podcast regretted that she didn't get some corn casserole that her friend made. We cooked our steaks in the Hamilton Beach sous vide, but Lee wasn't giving out his crab legs during Thanksgiving.
