The Simple Farm Goat Milk Caramels
Lylah Ledner on her artisan caramels
“A few years ago, I spent some time in France, and while there became a caramel lover. Regularly, I’d stop in at a little confectioners shoppe in St Jean de Luz called Henriet’s. I indulged in the most amazing salted caramels there.
Thinking about my caramel experience in France gave me the idea about the possibility of developing a value added product with our goat’s milk. Of course caramels – (salted goat milk caramels) came to mind.
I’d never made a caramel in my entire life—goat milk fudge—but never caramels. I just kept thinking that somehow if I could develop my own unique recipe…
What was important to us was that all our ingredients be organic—the sweet raw goat’s milk from our own hand-milked herd, organic butter and cream, and non-GMO light organic corn syrup along with fair trade Madagascar Bourbon vanilla.
When specialty boutiques and markets in Phoenix, California, Wisconsin, and Washington began to request how to carry little baskets of our artisan caramels, Michael and I knew we’d stumbled on to something amazing!”
These soft, buttery, artisan caramels can be purchased through specialty retailers and through The Simple Farm market.
Local & Delicious
Currently, each week, we hand make five to eight small batches of our farmstead caramels. Each caramel is hand wrapped and then packaged in either a 2 oz or 4 oz size.
