What is the difference between evaporated and condensed milk?

Evaporated milk is twice as concentrated as “normal” milk. It is sterilised before canning. Can be used to make custard or sauces,pumpkin pie, rice pudding or fluffy jelly.

Condensed milk is evaporated milk with sugar added. It is not sterilised, the high concentration of sugar preserves it. It is three times as concentrated as “normal” milk. Often used to make cheesecake, banoffie pie, toffee, caramel and fudge.
