When ever I try to make homemade condensed milk it crystalizes, but when i first initially add the sugar to the heavy cream i stir til the sugar melts

I want to know how I can get just liquid with no sugar crystals added

It's possible that you're over-reducing and there isn't enough liquid to hold the sugar, but if you're following the recipe that seems unlikely. This: http://www.southendformaggio.com/recipe-for-sweetened-condensed-milk/ says that stirring can induce crystallization, so try just stirring to combine and then leaving it be until it's done.

The current issue of Fine Cooking has an article and recipe on making sweetened condensed milk - maybe this will be helpful to you:
