Pasteurized Goat Milk
Caprella is a soft-ripened cheese in the Camembert family with a bloomy rind that is aged for 3-5 weeks.
The Cheeses of Vermont: A Gourmet Guide to Vermont's Artisanal Cheesemakers declares:
"I don't think there is a goat cheese in the country that can touch this silky satin, hauntingly flavored cheese"
Does' Leap is a diversified organic farm located in the heart of the beautiful green mountains in northern Vermont. They specialize in a variety of fresh and aged goat cheeses, all made from their own goats milk.
Their goats, a combination of Alpine and Alpine-Nubian cross, forage on the local browse and grass during the majority of the year, and are given supplemental hay, alfalfa and organic grain during the winter months. The milk from these goats is characteristic of their diverse diet- rich and sweet.
This cheese is amazingly delicious! The center is set, the outside edges are soft and runny, the rind is mild. I don't know what took me so long to try this, but i'm so happy that I did! A new favorite for sure!
Delicious -- as someone who is lactose intolerant, I can tolerate most goat cheeses well and this was a hit for both me and my best friend. Just the right balance of salty and sweet.
