Goat Cheese Spread with Lavender

By • July 21, 2011 • 2 Comments



Author Notes: Last summer in the Ballard Farmer's Market I came across beautiful, fresh, organic lavender. With the encouragement of the lavender farmer I bought several bouquets and came home and let it dry. Next was to grind some of it and use it as a seasoning. This recipe came from having goat cheese, and a beautiful bottle of Sauvignon Blanc I had brought back from New Zealand. It was a hot day and this is what I came up with. So refreshing! So easy to make!SKK

Serves 14

  • 16 ounces Goat Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 3 tablespoons Honey
  • 2 teaspoons dried, ground culinary lavender
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  1. Using your food processor, add all the ingredients and mix until blended. Serve with crackers or crispy bread. The Savignon Blanc is wonderful with it!

I do too - and the wine and black pepper really bring it alive!
