Valley Bounty: Chevon and Cabrito

Chevon and Cabrito

Though widely consumed throughout the world, goat meat is still a local novelty. It is quickly gaining in popularity, and a growing number of local farms now produce chevon (from adult animals) and cabrito (from young animals). Goat meat is exceptionally lean, so it lends itself well to being cooked with a moist heat. One bite of goat curry will make you a convert: sauté onions, garlic, ginger and curry powder in a pressure cooker or Dutch oven, add a quart jar of tomatoes, roast until tender, and enjoy!
