Dulce de Leche

3 liters milk
1 kilo sugar
2 vanilla sticks
3 tsp. sodium bicarbonate

Put the sugar in the milk with the vanilla sticks, bring to a boil, and then let simmer, stirring, for a few minutes. Then add a teaspoon of bicarbonate, being very careful because it will boil over. Let simmer, adding some bicarbonate when it becomes too thick on top.

Keep at it until it is the color of dark caramel, and when you put a drop on a dish, it should have the consistency of honey. It will then thicken a little on cooling. Cool and try on toast, or with pancakes.
