Carmelita Goat's Milk Caramel Sauce

Great goat's milk caramel from North Carolina

The Looking Glass Creamery in Asheville, NC is a small artisan operation that sources their goat’s milk from nearby farms and turns that milk into fresh cheeses and Carmelita. The Carmelita is a straightforward recipe: mix goat’s milk and sugar together, heat in a copper kettle and stir for hours and hours and hours. It takes the small crew an entire day to produce a batch of Carmelita, but the effort is worth it. 

I’ve tried more than a few goat’s milk caramels (sometimes referred to as cajeta) in my day, and even though I’m not a “sweets” kinda guy, this one really stands out. Not heavy or intense, though very rich with great depth and balance. It's an “every day caramel” meaning you could eat it every day. 

Darkly sweet, great spooned right out of the jar, on top of gelato, as a layer in baked goods or spread over good bread.
