Last night I was making the great chocolate covered cherry cookies that call for just 1/2 cup of the sweetened condensed milk.  I could not bear to dump  that stuff like I usuall do .... so I made TWO batches of the cookies.

i don't think you are supposed to store it in the can-----------but i remember when it came with that cap on the can-----just like the hershey's syrup------which in this area no longer comes with it----------most times i make some potato soup to use it up--------------but you can use it just like milk in any recipe---------scallopped potatoes ----cakes or anything----------but i keep it in an eight oz canning jar until i use it

a lot of great active women on here. How lucky we are. I just went to Walmart
a got 2 10 oz. jars of cherries to do Verlee,s choc. covered cherries candy.
I have them chilling in the frig. now. I think I will let them chill overnight.
I was already naughty and tried one without the choc.  It was awesome!!
lol lol It will be even better with the choc. lol lol Verlee is another one of
those great active women on VBB.  I will be getting some more cherries
next Wed. when I do my reg. grocery shopping. Got to try these cookies.

Nancy,  In the Choc. Covered Cherry Cookies recipe, the directions say sift
flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder and soda. In the ingredients there is no
baking powder. If there is baking powder is it a 1/2 teaspoon?  Thanks
Nancy for your help.

Nancy,
 Carol P had a question for you about the Cho. Covered Cherry Cookies & so do I.  The topic for this forum was evaporated milk, but you said you were using condensed milk.  Which milk is used for the cookies?

Carol, the chocolate covered cherry cookie recipe I use calls for 1/2 tsp. baking soda in the ingredients list.  Yikes.  The list of ingredients  doesn't include and baking powder.   I have not noticed ~blush blush~ that the directions include baking POWDER !!
I've made that stuff 4 or 5 times and not had a problem.  
Now, thanks to you - lol- I bet every future attempt is a disaster.
Maybe, please, the person who posted this recipe will say something about this.

Fran, that cookie recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk.  I was having the same problem with wasting it as other were having with evaporated milk.  But I'm sorry I butted in with a different product.  I apologize and hope I didn't cause any confusion.

I apologize to all about making that post.

As to storing evaporated milk I never have any left.  If the recipe I am doing calls for anything other than a full can I will double the recipe so I don't have any left.

Now for the lid.
I am pretty sure the "new" tops they sell for soda cans would work.  They are the ones designed to keep bugs out. I have seen two types one that goes over the can and sort of makes it look like the top of a plastic bottle.  I am pretty sure that the cap screws on just like a plastic bottle.  I think there is another version that goes on top of the can, it is more flat, and it also has a cover over the opening that can be closed to keep the can from spilling or to keep bugs out.

Not to worry, I just never came across a recipe that called for less than the whole can of Cond. milk.  The recipe for the cookies I will double (hate to take the time to just make 3 doz. Wink) because they sound so good.

Nancy,  I want to make these cookies on Thurs. or Wed. afternoon if I have the time. I didn't catch it
the first time that I was reading it.  If you haven't had a problem with it I will make it the same way as
you do.  I just thought you had forgotten to type in the baking powder!! lol lol It's very easy to do. Thanks
for getting back to me. Nancy, you are the cookie queen and I'm sure your future attempts at this recipe
will be perfect.  lol lol

I think my mother had one of those.  She and Dad used evaporated milk in their coffee.  I haven't seen one in years.  I have had success freezing the bit of leftover evaporated milk.  I only use it in cooking anyway so if the texture is a bit weird from freezing it doesn't matter.  It is better than letting it go to waste.

I did see caps by Martha Stewart  that can be used on multiple sized cans at Pet Smart stores.
