BVO’s Locavore Heaven Cheese Dip/Spread

Hello All,

Today at CSAX(tended) we will be giving out samples of this winter treat. Beulah, our Nubian flock queen, consented to provide a few gallons of fresh goat milk, to make this possible;

First, we made some Goat Ricotta Cheese, and then some Caprine Yoghurt. After aging it a few days:

1) finely dice a half cup of ricotta,

2) blend in a 1/4 cup of plain yoghurt ,

3) add and stir in 1 thawed cube of “Presto Pesto”, from this summer when we Vita-Mixed our summer fresh basil, garlic, and olive oil (sorry locavores, I just can’t seem to get olive trees to grow here yet, but global warming might soon change that), and

4) salt and pepper and other spices to taste.

This is a really good dip and/or spread on crackers, bread, or even apple slices if you have weird taste buds like me.
