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

Written by Nancy Lorenz on . Posted in Recipes

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!”

Mother Nature’s Fly Trap: Insect Control at Redwood Hill Farm

How we control the flies on our organic farm including complete plans for “Mother Nature’s Fly Trap”

We are totally committed to protecting our environment and the health/safety of our employees and goats.  Therefore, we have a policy of zero tolerance for synthetic chemical pesticides.  Cleanliness and sanitation are the first line of defense against such pests as common flies.  Their larvae need a moist, nitrogen rich area in which to incubate and hatch.  In so far as possible, such habitats are minimized in our management.  However, certain areas are always problematic on a working farm, such as around and underneath platforms supporting water tanks.  Insect predators are routinely distributed to such areas to feed on the fly larvae.

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.

Recipe: Use Chèvre Goat Cheese for Classic Cream Cheese Frosting

Written by Sharon Bice on . Posted in Recipes

Recipe_FruitAndSpiceCake_single

Cream Cheese Frosting is a classic for spice or carrot cakes. An alternative we love is substituting Redwood Hill Farm Plain Chèvre goat cheese for the cream cheese.

Chèvre is a fresh, light-textured, rindless goat cheese that is similar to cream cheese but softer and fluffier with only 1/3 of the fat and calories and it’s delicious in recipes like this one! Try this recipe with award-winning Redwood Hill Farm Plain Chèvre the next time you’d like a delicious and unique frosting for your special cake.
