Food Glossary: Dulce de leche

Dulce de leche is a favourite item in Argentinian homes and stores!  It is sold in jars and used as a spread on breads and pastries and is also sold in biscuits which are very popular.  It is a thick, caramel, sweet spread which I am sure is full of sugar!  It can be very sickly if you use too much.  It's name translates to 'sweets made of milk' - as it is made from sweetened milk.  I quite like some of the biscuits (they range in quality) but was not so keen on the spread.
