I need a quick dairy free substitute for evaporated milk, and don't have time to go trolling the shelves of Wholefoods right now.<br><br>
Can I boil down regular soymilk?

Well, I'm just going to go for it, unfortunately I don't have time to wait for the parade to be over, and I bet a bunch of you are also off cooking your squashes.<br><br>
If you have some down time to check back here, wish me luck. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I was actually wondering the same thing. I just did a quick google search and came up with this.<br><br>
Evaporated Milk<br>
Evaporated milk is just 2 servings of milk in 1 serving of liquid.<br>
So to get evaporated milk use twice as much instant dry soy milk powder to one serving of milk, or take ready made soy milk (with only soy beans and water on the label) and use that in place of water for mixing one serving of of instant dry soy milk powder.<br><br>
Or<br><br>
Sweetened Condensed 'Milk and Evaporated 'Milk<br><br>
Condensed Soymilk or Rice Milk I (Quick Method)<br><br>
Prepare 2 cups soymilk or rice milk made from powdered mix, using triple the powder called for.<br>
Add 3/4 cup sugar or equivalent.<br>
Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved.<br>
Add vanilla to taste, and a pinch of salt.<br>
Cool.<br>
Store in jar in fridge.<br><br>
For Evaporated 'Milk: Use only double the powder. Omit sugar.<br><br>
----<br><br>
Condensed Soymilk or Rice Milk II (Slow-Cook Method)<br><br>
Put 3 cups liquid soymilk or rice milk in a saucepan.<br>
Add 1/2 cup sugar or equivalent.<br>
Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until volume is reduced to 1 cup.<br>
Add vanilla to taste, and a pinch of salt.<br>
Cool.<br>
Store in jar in fridge.<br><br>
For Evaporated 'Milk: Cook until volume is reduced to 1 & 1/2 cups. Omit sugar.<br><br>
----<br><br>
Condensed Soymilk or Rice Milk III (Semi-quick Method)<br><br>
Put in blender:<br><br>
1 cup powdered soymilk or rice milk -- do not pack down!<br>
3 Tbsp melted margarine<br>
2/3 cup sugar<br>
1 tsp vanilla extract<br>
Pinch of salt<br>
1 cup boiling water<br><br>
Blend together until well mixed.<br>
Cool.<br>
Store in jar in fridge.<br><br>
For Evaporated 'Milk: Omit sugar, vanilla, margarine, and salt. Use 1 & 1/2 cups water.

Thanks this was exactly what I did. It took a lot of stirring to keep it from separating, but it seems to have worked. I didn't want to have to send DH to the store for powdered soymilk.<br><br>
Of course <i>he</i> now wants to run to the store for soda <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">, but he can just go to the local place for that, not all the way to Wholefoods.
