A Sweet Celebration!

Celebration Lime Cheesecake Bars
Quick Raspberry Sauce
Quick Berry Sauce
White Chocolate Glaze With Toasted Coconut and Pecans
Mixed Fruit Salsa
Magic Lemon Pie
Coconut Macaroons

(Family Features) - It's been called "magic." At least that's how it seemed in 1856 when Gail Borden transformed fresh milk into safe and shelf-stable sweetened condensed milk.

A return voyage from London in 1851 prompted Borden's invention. He saw children fall ill from lack of fresh milk and set out to find a way to preserve milk while maintaining its taste and quality. Borden developed a vacuum method to remove water from milk, adding sugar as a preservative.

Eagle Brand first became a staple during the Civil War, when troops needed milk that wouldn't spoil. It is also credited with significantly reducing the infant mortality rate in North America. When the two World Wars brought rationing and shortages to American households, Eagle Brand proudly provided a "magic" way to make desserts. Today, Eagle Brand is still America's most trusted sweetened condensed milk.
