 Caramel Sauces from Sweetened Condensed Milk

I originally saw this method on Pinterst and thought this is absolutely insane!  I would never have dreamed of putting a sealed can of sweetened condensed milk in a boiling or simmering pot of water.  Not only did it sound dangerous but another thing I questioned was; why would this create a caramel sauce?  So I did my due diligence and found several reputable sources that also gave instructions for doing this very thing.
