Marinated Goat Cheese

This was passed down to me from my mother. And it needs buttermilk ! I added a little sea salt sprinkled over the top and cut her recipe by a quarter.


  1. 1Combine the goats milk and buttermilk in a saucepan. Over a very low heat bring to a simmer and cook until curds are formed. This varies in time and can take up to 30 minutes. Add salt and pepper if you’d like.
  2. 2After the curds are formed cover a colander with two layers of cheese cloth (or more).
    The cheese cloth should be moistened with very hot water and wrung out. Pour the
    curds into the colander to separate from the whey. Let drain.
  3. 3While you are draining the cheese, slowly, very slowly, cook the garlic in the olive oil in a small skillet until it is golden. If it blackens, toss it and start again. Keep that temperature low!
  1. 1Either mold the cheese or lump it into a pretty bowl, which is what I do, and pour the garlic and oil over. Place the sage and thyme sprigs around it like a wreath. Sprinkle with sea salt to taste. Tastes good warm or marinated overnight with crackers or crostini.
