Chai Concentrate

Chai Concentrate
Adapted from The Oregonian

1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

In a medium-sized pouring vessel, such as a Pyrex measuring cup, add sweetened condensed milk, sugar, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Mix until combined. Store in the refrigerator.

To use: Brew a cup of strong black tea, such as Assam, then add two heaping teaspoons of concentrate or more to taste. Stir well until concentrate has fully melted. Or, pour over vanilla ice cream, it's absolutely delicious. Keep refrigerated.

To give: Pour into small jars (I used half pint jars, all but about 2 Tablespoons did not fit in this size jar) with lids and package decoratively. Attach a tag with instructions to keep the mix refrigerated and how to use it.

To keep: Store in refrigerator for up to 6 months.
