Oh My Goodness.
I’m overcome with my own brilliance as a cook. I just made goats cheese.
Goats cheese. I know!!!!!!
I saw the recipe months ago and filed it away in the back of my mind to try ‘one day’. Yesterday I was in the supermarket and I saw a litre of goats milk and thought I’d give this a bash. All I needed as the goats milk, lemon juice and salt. How low maintenance is that?
When I got home I was a bit nervous about making it. So I didn’t do it. I mean… what if it didn’t work? Then I’d be disappointed. So I drank red wine and watched a dull movie on TV and went to bed early.
But this morning I woke up fired up! I raced out to the thermomix at the crack of dawn, (well…. I had a couple of coffees first), and got started. Honestly, it was ridiculously easy. You just heat the milk to 90C for 15 mins (ie Just push a couple of buttons and then go and read some blogs) and then add lemon juice and then drain it to the consistency you prefer. Then add salt and put it into a ramekin and take a photo. Easy!
I’m planning home-made pizzas tonight so I made it dry and crumbly, but can you imagine making it spreadable and mixing it with herbs? Imagine putting fresh goats cheese on crackers….mmmmmmm.
