In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, whisk milk and sweetener together.
Whisking often, bring to a boil on medium-high heat. Watch the milk closely so it doesn't boil over.
As soon as the steam starts lifting off the milk and sugar is dissolved (about 13 minutes), reduce heat to the lowest setting and continue to gently boil.
Add butter and continue to cook for about another 1hr 15 minutes, stirring the milk approximately every 15 minutes.
Once reduced to about 1 cup, pour into a pint size jar.
Allow to chill and it will thicken just like the stuff in the jar ready to be used in your favorite recipes.
To use alternative sweeteners, follow this guideline:
use same amount of coconut sugar but please note, the color of the finished product will be darker than in photos
to use honey or maple syrup, use ½ cup instead of ⅔ as per recipe. Use light colored honey. If using maple syrup, the color of finished product will be darker than in photos.
This recipe works great when doubling.
