MIMI'S FABULOUS GOAT CHEESE

  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 quart goats milk (from your local health food store)
  • 1 Cup buttermilk
  • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 Cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a sprig of fresh thyme
  • a few leaves of fresh sage

Directions

  • Whisk together the goat's milk and buttermilk in a sauce pan and add salt to taste.
  • Over a very low heat cook until the mixture separates the curds from the whey...about 30 minutes or so.
  • Make sure the curds form.
  • Cool slightly and strain through a damp cheesecloth (4 layers)over a sieve.
  • Let drain until the whey is gone.
  • While straining the goat cheese put the olive oil and garlic clove in a saute pan and over a very very low heat cook until garlic is soft and lightly golden.
  • Either mold the cheese or simply mound up in a small bowl. Place herbs as a wreath around.
  • After the garlic has cooked long enough cool and pour over the cheese and herbs.
  • Let it marinate to develop the flavors or just eat if you can't wait which is usually what I end up doing.

Notes

This is so easy and so yummy you'll never want to buy goat cheese again. I swear. It's from my mom and she was one of the world' great cooks.
