Redwood Hill Farm Recipes

Recipe-Box-SmallGoat milk products are a natural in cooking! Enjoy these wonderful recipes, many courtesy of local Bay Area chefs, or experiment on your own. Try using Redwood Hill Farm goat milk yogurt or kefir in almost any recipe that calls for milk, cream, sour cream or buttermilk. The live cultures and lactic acid in yogurt and kefir helps marinate all types of meat. Commonly used to tenderize chicken (tandoori is fabulous, as is leg of lamb,) it would also be great for beef or chicken kabobs.

Recipe: Plain Chèvre “Perpetual Goatstopper”

Written by Sharon Bice on . Posted in Recipes

Perry Soulos_PrepsPerfectBiteChevre

The “Perfect Bite” winner at the first West Coast Cheesemonger Invitational (CMI) at Public Works in San Francisco on January 19 was an unlikely, but delicious combination of flavors and texture that just worked. “The Perpetual Goatstopper” was the creation of Cheesemonger Perry Soulos of Arrowine and Cheese in Arlington, VA, who paired our award-winning plain chèvre with grapes, candied ginger and Burstin’ Berry Poppin’ Pebbles™ breakfast cereal to create his unique, eye-catchingly delicious perfect bite.

“I really wanted to do something different and fun with my perfect bite,” said Soulos. “When we first received the list of cheeses to choose from, I went right for Redwood Hill Farms’ Traditional Plain Chèvre. I knew the product very well from my years behind the cheese counter and thought it would be the perfect choice for a California-inspired cheese bite. Its decadent and rich flavor and clean lemony tang make it very versatile in the kitchen.

Recipe: “Save the Best for Last”, A Cheese Dessert Course

Written by Sharon Bice on . Posted in Recipes

RHF_SaveTheBestForLast

Goat cheese and goat milk confections create a visually dazzling presentation!

Many sweets pair remarkably well with our creamy goat cheese. Use your imagination and choose your own favorite cookies or breads for accompaniments, or choose from our suggestions. Beautiful fruit and fresh-cut flowers add a dramatic flair to your dessert course.

Bring your cheeses out at least one hour before serving to allow them to come to room temperature and plan on about 30 minutes for preparing this course. This will serve 8-10 as shown except for the Chevre Dessert, you’ll need to make more and/or use smaller individual containers
Use our design as a guide and have fun creating this very unique dessert and delicious dessert tray!

Top Tier:

Redwood Hill Farm Plain Chèvre Dessert is sweetened, whipped fresh chèvre, piped into dessert parfaits, and topped with shaved dark chocolate and lemon zest. (Select here for recipe)

Dipping Cookies  Sweet currant “Twigs” are divine for dipping (Lovesticks.com) or provide simple tea cookies for pairing.

Goat Milk Fudge We used two goat milk fudges: Bittersweet Chocolate, and Bittersweet Chocolate with Marshmallows and Walnuts both from KiddingAroundWithChocolate.com.

Bottom Tier, clockwise from 1:00 oclock:

Redwood Hill Farm Plain Chèvre  is spooned into a bowl and drizzled with Goat Milk Caramel Sauce from KiddingAroundWithChocolate.com and paired with candied pecans for dipping.

Redwood Hill Farm Bucheret This cheese, with its white bloomy rind, has a dense and buttery, flavorful interior. We love pairing it with pure, raw, Sonoma County honeycomb.

Redwood Hill Farm Aged Cheddar is smooth textured, with a sweet, complex lavor from the aging process. It is delicious with sliced membrillo (quince paste).

Redwood Hill Farm Camellia Our luscious, Camembert-style goat milk cheese is drizzled with Organic Raspberry Spread. We love the Raspberry Spread at SweetCreekFoods.com.

Fresh Artisan Bread In the center, we mounded cubes of fresh, sweet, artisan bread with nuts and raisins.

And voila, a delicious and beautiful presentation for your party, family or friends! Planning this cheese dessert course for your next get-together? We’d love to get your comments.

Recipe: Green Bean Casserole with Smoked Redwood Hill Farm Goat Cheese and Fennel

Written by Nancy Lorenz on . Posted in Recipes

smoky-green-bean-casserole-3

Update your classic holiday green bean casserole, using our goat cheese, lactose free sour cream, and fresh, in-season fennel and green beans.

“As a kid, my very favorite Thanksgiving dish was the green bean casserole. It still is, come to think of it. I suppose it’s one of the formative flavors from my childhood. Fast forward a few decades, and now that I’m pushing forty (gah!) and have changed how I eat, the notorious canned-soup version doesn’t really hold the same appeal for me. So what to do? Make a new dish that kicks the old one’s butt, that’s what!”

NourishingConnectionsBook

The following recipe is from the Ceres Project’s “Nourishing Connections Cookbook”. Fresh and delicious because it’s made with Redwood Hill Farm Goat Milk Yogurt and Goat Milk Kefir, this dip pairs equally well with  crackers or crudite!

 

“Nourishing Connections Cookbook” is available!
We have a copy at Redwood Hill and I find myself picking it up often when looking to be inspired for a creative nourishing meal or from the heartwarming writing on improving my own diet. The links & resource section are wonderful as well.

 

Recipe: Fruit and Spice Cake

Written by Sharon Bice on . Posted in Recipes

Recipe_FruitAndSpiceCake_Dessert

This lovely cake was adapted from a favorite cookbook of mine, The Heritage of Southern Cooking by Camille Glenn. It is a family heirloom cake of hers and we think it will become a favorite with your family too! The original recipe calls for chopped, cooked, pitted prunes but the spices in it begs for trying pineapple or even cooked, chopped peaches as an alternative. The fruit may vary in the amount of moisture it gives to the batter, so if the batter looks a little loose after adding the fruit of your choice, add a tablespoon or so of flour.

I am showing the cake here with a delicious goat cheese Cream Cheese Frosting which is a perfect complement. This recipe, along with the original recipes suggested frosting, Caramel Kefir, are both in our dessert section.  Remember: Redwood Hill Farm plain goat milk kefir is a perfect substitute for buttermilk in any recipe! The original recipe states that this cake is delicious served without frosting if desired.
