However, for quite some time I have cooked more or less “regular” dishes. This will end today, as I want to share a recipe for home-made and honey-sweetened goat cheese with you. I’ll be honest with you: it wasn’t love at first sight. Goat cheese had always been a savory ingredient to me. Sweetening it with dried fruit and honey sounded good, but my palate had to get used to it. However from the first bite on, there was something about this cheese, that made me go back to it and have another bite, another spoonful spread on some bread, etc. Before I knew the first batch was eaten up.
There is something about making your cheese at home. It’s so easy and rather quick. After that it’s up to you if this cheese will have a subtle or bold sweetness: by adding more or less honey and by deciding which dried fruit you want to add. The nuts give it a crunch that goes well with the creaminess and sweetness of the cheese. I love it in the morning or as snack between meals. Bon appetit!
