Looking for cajeta in Chapel Hill
I'm trying to make some caramel paletas, and the recipe I have calls for 3/4 cup cajeta, which is described as "a sticky, sweet goat's milk caramel." No idea how this comes - a can? Is anyone familiar with this item, and have any ideas on where I could find it in or near Chapel Hill?
many thanks for any advice you can give.
I don't know about CH, but just about every Latino store in Raleigh carries it. It's just dulce de leche made from goat's milk, rather than cow's milk. It comes in jars or squeeze bottles and is shelved with the dulce de leche. If you have a favorite supermercado try them first.
If it's sold in stores, you should be able to find it in Carrboro. My first thought was the Foodlion on Jones Ferry Rd in Carrboro, simply for ease of parking, but the staff there may not be able to help much . Also possibly Cliff's Meat Market or Don Jose's at the intersection of Rosemary and Main St.
