    Anyone have some Chevre recipes they wanna share with me. Sorry for posting this here but the cheese sticky doesn’t always get as much traffic.

    I have made a sweet basil/pesto blend as well as a sun-dried tomato. I was thinking of a combo that uses an orange zest & some sort of nuts.

    Has anyone ever blended smoked salmon into chevre before??

    I make a orange zesty one.. walnuts toasted in butter, then chopped.. dried cranberries, chopped fine & fresh orange zest.. I mix it into the chevre, instead of rolling it on the outside.. really good with grapes and wheat thins.. have never had any left overs, no matter how big of a batch I take to parties.. this is my most requested chevre.

    That sounds REALLY good Susie! I blend almonds, cranberries and honey into mine. People just use spoons - that can't wait for a cracker.

    I also do smoked salmon with capers - another favorite :)

    I've rolled plain chevre in chopped dill, paprika and coarsely ground salt and pepper. The salt and pepper is my fav.

    I have pics here.

    When I visited a goat dairy here in Texas I sampled several flavors...

    One was called Ambrosia....had white chocolate flakes, pineapple, coconut & mandarin oranges.....Ir was so good I could have ate it by the bowl full!!

    The Fig & Honey was great too & would have gone great on a bagel..

    The Peach Chipotle started out mild & sweet, the grew hot....sounds weird but it was really good.....Their website is www.onpureground.com

    No recipes, but it has lots of cheese descriptions that may inspire you to try something new :D

    I plan to try & make cheeses similar to what I tried there...

    Crushed pineapple and brown sugar is a favorite around here.

    I also do one where I mix in fresh and dried herbs: chives, garlic, onion powder, dill, oregano, thyme and paprika.

    Drained chopped pineapple & chopped walnut mixed in.

    The children prefer ranch dressing powder mixed in. Go figure.
