I make dulce de leche like Eduardo does - place an unopened can of 
sweetened condensed milk into a deep pan.  Fill the pan with water, 
enough to cover the can by an inch or more.  I bring mine to a low boil 
and adjust the heat to keep it there.  (My stove is electric.)  Top up 
the water in the pan so that the can remains covered.  Cook at a low 
boil or simmer for 3 hours for a light color, or 5-6 hours for a darker 
color.  Remove the can with tongs and let it cool before opening.  This 
is what our hostess in Argentina taught us when we lived there for two
