Caramel in a Can - Mmmmmmmmmm

This deserves a blog post on its own... My mom used to make this when we were kids and we kids LOVED it!!  And it's sooooo easy!!!  All you do is buy a can of sweetened condensed milk, rip off the label and boil for about 3 hours, depending on the consistency you are looking for (less if you want more of a sauce, and more if you want a spread).  You have to make sure the can is always covered by water (so you add some from time to time) and then you have to wait for the can to cool before you open it...  My mom used to boil it for almost 4 hours as we used this caramel to spread on cookies - mmmmmmmmm!! :)
