For an unexpected Valentine treat, try this lovely Goat Milk Caramel Sauce, made in nearby Chester Springs farm.

A noticeable goat-cheese tang balances out the sweetness of caramelized organic sugar and vanilla.

With our cheese-centric Valentine suggestions, may we suggest this as an accompaniment to a sliver of Manchego or any salty sheep's milk cheese.

Then again, the consistency is thin enough to drizzle over ice cream, Greek yogurt, crepes, or, especially, a pancake breakfast in bed.
