  • 2 (2-inch) sticks canela
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon water


  1. Combine goat's milk, canela and sugar in a saucepan. Over medium-high heat, bring milk mixture to a simmer, stirring often to prevent it from boiling over.

  3. Strain and refrigerate for up to one week, tightly covered.
