Cajeta Sauce with Anise (Mexican Caramel Sauce)

Cajeta is a thick caramel from Mexico. Goat or cow’s milk is cooked slowly with sugar and a flavoring, such as cinnamon and vanilla, until it is thick and a deep rich color and flavor. Use it as a luxurious topping or filling for cakes and cookies or as an ingredient in desserts.

Instructions

  • Bring all ingredients except vanilla to boil in 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven on medium-high heat, stirring frequently. (It is important to keep stirring to prevent mixture from boiling over.) Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes or until sauce is reduced by half, coats the back of a spoon and is a deep brown caramel color.

  • Carefully strain cajeta into medium heatproof bowl. Stir in vanilla. Cool to room temperature. Cover. Store in refrigerator up to 2 weeks. If desired, warm cajeta in microwave oven before serving.
