Cajeta Popularity Surprises Dairy Goat Farm Caprino Royale
Caprino Royale produces goat cheese on a farm outside of Waco, TX. Recently, however, their goat's milk cajeta has been stealing the show at high-end Dallas restaurants. Customers and chefs can't get enough of this sweet, tangy, caramel-like milk jam.
Tippit calls the cajeta a sleeper. “It caught us by surprise,” she says of its success. Now her husband, Eric, has just finished a separate cajeta room on their farm, where Tippit can have six pots going at a time without taking over the cheese room.
“We’re a cheese company first,” she says. “But the more people taste it, the more people want it: We could have a cajeta business.” If only they had unlimited milk.
