Goatucation: Goat's Milk Caramel Sauce (Spiced)

This week I am letting the publicist tell you how she makes caramel sauce with my rich milk. She has been making lots of caramel sauce. LOTS of caramel sauce. This time she made spiced caramel sauce. She has also made orange caramel sauce. Like I said she has made lots of sauce.

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.



 It foams. 
A lot.






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.


Tomorrow: Playtime

  10. ok first all that yummy looking cheese... now caramel sauce...oh my I need a pail.. the goats I have!! :O)... I am thinking milking is getting moved up on my list of have to start doing all this!

    ok let me ask you this, I had goat cheese once that was excellent! It reminded me of Feta cheese in a lot of ways... years later I bought some (several brands) at the grocery store...they had the worst after taste...like dirty socks...

    Is this due to the way it was made? I really liked the first goat cheese I tasted.

    Your stuff all looks mouth watering good.
