Difference Between Sweetened Condensed & Evaporated Milk

 What's the difference between sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk? Can they be used interchangeably?

 Oh no, no, no! Both versions have had about 60 percent of their water removed by evaporation. There the similarity ends. Before evaporation, lots and lots of sugar is added to the future condensed milk, so that by the time itís in the can, it is about 65 percent sugar as opposed to the 11 or 12 percent of naturally occurring sugar in the boiled-down evaporated milk.
