A Redwood Hill Farm favorite
This recipe has been a favorite for as long as we can remember. We recently learned that it first appeared in print in SF Gate on January 2, 2003 in an article by Lynne Char Bennett. CLICK HERE for the link to the original recipe and article which includes wine pairings too.
There is an amazing persimmon tree on the farm, each year it gifts us such an abundance of fruit AND the fall color is spectacular (it’s fall and I must get a picture soon and post it here). This tart has it all, great contrast of tart and sweet, the creamy chèvre just shines and it’s beautiful to look at before slicing for your family or guests.
Baking with the seasonal harvest is such a great way to celebrate! One of our many Redwood Hill Farm customers sent this recipe to us, and after trying it, we knew we had to include it here. If you have a favorite recipe with any of our artisan goat milk products please send it along—we’d love to share it too.
This simple salad topped with warmed goat cheese is a popular menu item in France. Use either our fresh Chevre, California Crottin or Terra.
Featured in Sunset magazine, this delicious recipe stuffs Poblano chilies with cheesy mashed potatoes. Serve with home-made bell pepper salsa, or cut prep time by purchasing prepared salsa. Our thanks to Barbara Schack, sister of the late Steven Schack, former co-owner of Redwood Hill Farm, for contributing this, one of our favorite recipes.
