A Chevre Treat

10 Jul

Since I’m milking the girls and getting a lot and my freezer is already half full, that means it’s a good time for me to play and experiment.  I decided I need to find a way to replace the cream cheese spread that I like so much with my bagels.

I made some chevre and added strawberries and a bit of sugar and mixed it all together with my stick blender.

I have to say, it’s pretty amazing.  Luckily, chevre freezes well, so I can make a big batch and have it all year round.

I’m also going to play with other additives, so it will be more like dip, but that is later in the cheese-making season.

Chevre is easy and what people typically think of when you say goat cheese.  I love that it is so versatile–I use is as a substitute for cream cheese, ricotta, or sour cream.

    Hello, this is the first I’ve heard of Chevre. It looks like cream cheese and it looks delicious.
    Enjoy your day, happy weekend!

    It looks so pretty and smooth! I’ve never had any. Is it always a goat cheese?

      Chevre is the traditional goat cheese.

        Is the Chevre easy to make? I s’pose I could look it up online. We don’t have a very fancy kitchen.

        It is super easy, but I am not sure it would work with pasteurized milk. Might have to have an additive.
