In this recipe,it calls for "sweet milk"....does that mean eagle brand condensed sweet milk?

CDKitchen Note: Sweet milk is a way that was used to describe what we now refer to as whole milk. It's an "old fashioned" term to go with an "old fashioned" recipe

This recipe is great! I added dried cranberries, which worked well. I also halved the recipe (so easy to do with the portion calculator) which made at LEAST 5 generous servings. Very easy to prepare.
