It doesn't crumble well in my hands. Advice? Thanks in advance.

Some crumble well in your fingers, but others don't. I've had some that are so creamy that I've had to pinch blobs off. Sometimes using a fork helps to avoid body heat. It's all good, just crumble the best way you can. :0)

another way to crumble very sticky goat cheese. open on its own wrapping or a piece of foil, waxed paper etc. Cut in small pieces with a knife, invert paper over the dish (salad, whatever) and scrape cheese into it.
If you get a super creamy one, just toss it in the freezer for 5 minutes (Set a timer so you don't forget!) and then crumble away with your hands or a fork!
OK, I will give up my resignation on this topic and try freezing first. Thank you!
I went to my favorite cheesemonger, Irene, and asked her this question. Her response was "I have tried pushing it through the holes of a colander. It doesn't always work. And if you find a way to crumble goat cheese come back and let me know and we will both be famous."
The colander trick did not work, so I used a different cheese, a hard cheese I grated. And my guests loved the recipe.

I like to use gloves because it's a little less messy. Just a little. C. Nielsen's freezer suggestion is interesting.
