A simple recipe for creamy goat cheese, Chèvre
Making chevre is suprisingly simple. All you need to make chevre is milk, a culture, thermometer and about 20 hours to let it set and drain.
Supplies are easily found and quickly sent by New England Cheesemaking Supply. Our favorite place for goatsmilk locally is Sweet Pea Cheese.
Sometimes I am a purest and stick to the recipe, other times I let is drain with lemons. When it is ready you can keep it plain, mix in chives or roll it in herbs, nuts or your favorite dried fruit.
Chevre, homemade bread and crackers always adore my holiday table and are my very favorite gifts to give.
What to do with it;
- Cream Cheese Frosting with a nutty twist
- A Salad full of Love
- Grilled Sirloin finished with Black Pepper Chevre
- Cheesy day ahead mashed potatoes
