Friday’s Food Quiz Number 63

Once again, here is Pink’s (nearly) weekly quiz, and my answers:

commercial schmaltz may be produced from rendered chicken or goose fat. Home made schmaltz is made holsum and vegetables. 

2. What is the difference between evaporated milk and condensed milk?

evaporated milk has had most of the water removed from the milk and is therefore a dehydrated milk. condensed milk also has the water removed, but is sweetened with sugar. both are canned and stable for leaving on the shelf for many years.
