Our Notes: A rich and complex Caramel, leveraging the richness and complexity of the goat milk used in the making of the caramel. It has a creamy density that allows it to be spooned out versus pour making it very versatile adding it to dessert or appetizer plates.
Fat Toad Farms velvety goat's milk caramel sauces (Cajeta) combine creamy caramel richness with the subtle tang of goat's milk to create an utterly unique, not-too-sweet dessert sauce perfectly paired with ice cream, fruit, and cheeses.
About the Producer:
The path to Fat Toad Farms is down a beautiful and winding - sometimes muddy, sometimes snowy, sometimes really muddy- dirt road carving through the hills of Central Vermont. The company began with a lovely French Alpine doe named Jupiter, hand milked out of the garage. Eight years later, Fat Toad Farms is milking Jupiter's daughter Artemis and 59 of her closest caprine friends in a modern parlor. The goat's milk caramel sauces (the traditional Mexican confection known as Cajeta) is the happy result of combining a small number of fresh, simple, natural ingredients and a lotta love (and stirring). From the grazing and milking to the stirring, bottling, labeling, marketing and shipping, it all happens right on the farm in true farmstead fashion.
