Goat Milk Caramel Sauce

A delicious goat milk caramel confection. Try it on top of some Honey Vanilla Goat Milk Ice Cream — or just about anything else you can imagine.

Ingredients

  • 1 Quart Summerhill Goat Milk
  • 1 cup sugar (no substitutes- nothing will caramelize as well)
  • 1 whole cinnamon stick
  • ½ tsp. Kosher salt
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp baking soda

How to Make It

Step 1

Mix milk and sugar in a large, heavy-bottom sauce pan.

NOTE: Make sure the pan is large enough for the sauce to froth up when the baking soda is added later.

Step 2

Add the cinnamon stick, salt, and vanilla extract. Bring to a boil on a medium- high heat white constantly stirring. This will take about 15 minutes – you must watch carefully or it will boil over in a heartbeat!

Step 3

Once the milk boils, remove from the heat and add baking soda to the pan. The mixture will froth, bubble, and grow- just keep stirring well.

Step 4

Place the pot back over medium heat and stir often, at least every 10 minutes. Keep the milk at a gentle simmer (not a raging boil). Stir well, especially along the bottom of the pan so it doesn’t scorch. Adjust heat as needed.

Step 5

After 1 to 1 ½ hours, the milk will start to turn golden brown. Remove the cinnamon stick.

Step 6

The caramel will begin the thicken quickly. Keep stirring for 15- 30 minutes. The longer you cook it here, the harder and stiffer the sauce will be.

Step 7

Once it is a rich brown and thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, remove from heat and allow to cool just a bit. Pour into an airtight container and refrigerate for up to a week.
