Easy, delicious and fun to do on a winter afternoon~  make chevre.


1 quart goat milk

1/3 cup lemon juice


In a large pot slowly warm milk to 180 degrees.  Stir milk with rubber spatula as to avoid scorching the milk.

When the milk is 180 degrees add lemon juice.  As you stir the milk it should begin to curdle.  Let milk rest for 20-30 minutes.

Line a colander with five layers of cheese cloth.  Place colander over a large bowl and pour milk into the cloth.  Let cheese sit for 1-2 hours.  When the liquid is finished draining it can be seasoned, put into storage container and stored in the refrigerator.

    I am so shocked at how easy that is! I cannot wait to try it! Do you use raw goat’s milk or pasteurized?

    All of this just feeds my obsession to have goats someday!…… : )


    PS–actually– I meant to say–wow, this looks so hard that I am sure you need to come here in person and demonstrate… oui. c’est vrai.

      Yes, as soon as you have my room ready in the new house- I’m there! I don’t have access to raw goats milk yet but would use that if I could! Do you?? Wait- silly question- of course you do- you live in FRANCE!!!

    I’ve never made cheese. But if I ever started, goat cheese would be my first.

  4. You make this sound so easy! Our friends have goats, and are restoring a historical farm….it may be time to beg some goat’s milk!
