Peak evaporated milk - 13 Fl oz

Peak Evaporated Milk  is a popular African shelf-stable canned cow’s milk product where about 60% of the water has been removed from fresh milk. The production process involves the evaporation of 60% of the water from the milk, followed by homogenization, canning, and heat-sterilization. Evaporated milk contains added vitamin D. Peak evaporated milk can be used as a substitute for store bought whole milk by adding water to it.
