I've made this recipe once, many, many, years ago. The end result was something extremely similar to a Kraft Vanilla Caramel square.

Cajeta
Mexican Caramel sauce

3 c goat’s milk
c sugar
1 T light corn syrup
1 vanilla bean
t baking soda, dissolved in 1 T water
1 t dark rum
1 t pineapple juice

Combine the goat’s milk, sugar, corn syrup in a pan. Cut the vanilla bean in half lengthwise, scraping the seeds off the pod, and into the milk. Drop the pod halves into the milk as well. Bring to a boil. Add the baking soda. The mixture will foam. Cook on medium heat, stirring frequently, uncovered, until it turns to light caramel, about 45 minutes. Strain the caramel to remove the vanilla pods. Stir in the rum and pineapple juice.


Someone, on another thread, mentioned making caramel with Eagle Brand. For the life of me, I can't remember what thread it was.

You're a life saver Allen, or should I say a Kraft caramel! Thanks so much, I'll let you know how it turns out later in the month (I'm going to omit the rum though, I hope it won't make a difference?)

I love apples!

I like all different types of apples. My favorites are granny smith, red & golden delicous, and a few others. In fact I made an apple pie tonight using granny smith apples and its really good.

Probably not, but you might have to add just a bit more sugar. Taste it at the end of cooking and see.

Personally, I might want to make this using a Coconut Rum or Spiced Rum, just to see what kind of flavor it would have.
