She starts with 3 quarts of my rich milk in a large pot
Then she puts cinnamon sticks and cloves in cheesecloth
and ties it up.
She uses fresh grated nutmeg
And two vanilla beans; split and scraped.
Once all of that is in the pot - with a pinch of salt - doesn't it look yummy?
she brings the mixture just to a boil.
She turns off the the heat and then she adds sugar(3 cups)until it is dissolved and baking soda.
After she stirs down the foam she puts the pot back on the burner until it comes to a simmer and lets it simmer for HOURS. Until it gets thick and turns a beautiful well, caramel color.
When it gets thick enough she pours it into jars. It can keep in the refrigerator for up to three months. She laughs hysterically at this because so far it has not lasted a week.
I hope you enjoyed this goatucation.
