This savory gift from the kitchen is a welcome departure from holiday confections. Pack the goat cheese in glass jars and tie with a decorative ribbon. Attach a card on top with suggestions for serving.
- About 10 oz. firm fresh goat cheese, whole,
sliced or formed into small balls
- 2 bay leaves
- 12 black peppercorns
- 1 tsp. dried thyme
- 1 tsp. dried rosemary
- 2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
Wine PairingThis pairs well with crisp, medium-bodied white wines like the Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc, Napa County/Sonoma County from our Wine Club.
Directions:Put the cheese in a dry, sterilized, lidded jar large enough for the cheese to be covered by the oil. Tuck in the bay leaves and sprinkle with the peppercorns, thyme and rosemary.
Pour the olive oil over the cheese and close the lid.
Store the cheese in a cool, dark place for up to 2 months. Once opened, store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. Bring to room temperature before serving. Makes 1 pint.
