Delicious maple goat milk caramel cajeta, made by hand in small batches by Yellow Birch Farm.
Cajeta is a traditional Mexican caramel sauce made by slow-cooking sweetened goat milk. Our cajeta is made with all natural, GMO-free milk from our herd of Alpine, Oberhasli, and Saanen goats. We bring it to a boil and then simmer and hand-stir it in copper pots for hours. Milk caramels span many cultures from Mexico to France, with goat milk caramel having a uniquely delicious quality. Recipes vary from country to country and cook to cook; we give our caramel a taste of Maine terroir* by adding local, organic, Maple Syrup. You can enjoy it on pancakes, spread on toast, on fruit, ice cream, in baked goods, in your coffee, or…..by the spoonful!
Ingredients: milk from our goats, organic sugar, local organic maple syrup, baking soda, and organic corn starch
* Terroir refers to the uniqueness of place. Environmental conditions of an area in which a food is grown, the elements of soil, water, and climate, feed and browse, the habits and customs of a culture, all impart a "taste of place", to the food produced in that area.
