This one is for those of us who keep goats or have access to goat milk. Unless you are keeping a lot of goats, you should only have access to smaller quantities of this milk. If you want to make cheese from goat’s milk then you can go ahead and take a look at this homemade chevre cheese recipe.

Did you know? The word Chevre in French means goat’s cheese? Well now you do. This type of cheese is low fat but contains higher levels of vitamin A and potassium too. If you have a low tolerance for cow’s milk, you may want to give this cheese a try.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • goat milk
  • starter culture
  • kosher salt
  • stainless steel pot
  • fresh chopped thyme
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • plastic wrap
  • basket mold
  • butter muslin
  • whisk
  • bowl
  • fork
  • cooking thermometer
  • plastic storage container (optional)
  • colander (optional)
  • cotton pillowcase (optional)

The good news is that this cheese is supposed to be one of the easiest to make. You begin by heating the milk up to 80 degrees F in the pan, before sprinkling in the starter culture and whisking the mixture to stir. Leave it out for 12 to 24 hours, overnight is usually good enough.

The curds which form which a snow like color, can then be scooped out and the whey can be saved for other uses too. Drain out the curds in the muslin lined butter mold for at least 6 hours. If you want a thicker cheese which is dryer, then you can leave to drain longer. All that’s left is for you to season, mold it. Stores for up to 7 days in your fridge.
