Celebrating a wonderful Fathers Day at Hope Haven with a cheese creation inspired by my sweet husband. Originally from Canada, and his favorite flavors are nutty, honey and salty. He also loves pesto. So this was posing quite the challenge.
First I made a lovely batch of plain chèvre to use as my canvas.
Then I slow roasted chopped pecans, with our goat milk butter, and added a bit of brown sugar, maple syrup and Himalayan salt for balance.
I blended the plain chèvre with a bit of honey and more Himalayan fine cheese salt.
Finally rolled it together with freshly harvested basil washed with lemon juice.
The resulting cheese is fantastic!!!!!
Happy Fathers Day!
How do you use or recycle your egg shells?
if you have chickens, it’s great to feed them to hens. It aids in calcium development of future eggs.
Just collect then dry them in a oven at 200 degrees for 10 minutes then crush. After they cool; place in a jar. Their purpose is to sprinkle at the base of plants like peppers and tomatoes to prevent blossom rot and it’s great for pests as well.
start seeds in them; right in the carton. If carton is cardboard, just cut apart and plant directly. Easy peesey.
Do you save your egg shells? Share your ideas below.
