Get Your Goat

"With an earthy tartness that's easy to love, goat's milk
is delicious in many more ways than the familiar log of soft
chevre. Exceptional butter, yogurt, aged cheese, and even ice
cream are now available at natural food stores, specialty markets,
and some supermarkets. Here are six tempting examples.
Meyenberg Goat Milk has a surprising sweetness, use it in
bechamel sauce, custard, ice milk and more.
Cypress Grove Creamline Midnight Moon, is a Gouda style cheese
that makes a killer base for mac and cheese.
Liberte Goat Milk Butter is made in Canada from Vermont milk
that's free of growth hormones, this butter is rich and mild, with
a subtle saltiness.
Redwood Hill Farm Goat Milk Yogurt is tangy and silky. Try it
as a low-calorie alternative to creme fraiche.
Laloo's Black Mission Fig Ice Cream comes in several flavors.
This one is like eating a fig newton in ice cream form.
Fat Toad Farm Goat's Milk Caramel is a version of dulce de leche.
Sweet and addicting, it's great smeared on toast, or drizzled over
fruit or ice cream."
