Do you have a friend or family member that is “distinctive, tangy, and fresh”? Chances are, they’re a goat cheese lover!
We’ve collected an assortment of goat cheese themed gifts, a few cheeses, some accompaniments, and a few surprises, at a good mixture of price points. We know you’ll find the perfect gift for your goat cheese loving friend on this list.
1. Homemade Fruit & Nut Crisps
Before we launch into our priced gift list, we just had to share this lovely recipe for Fruit & Nut Crisps. Pricing will, of course, vary depending on what you have in your pantry, how much you decide to make, and the brand of ingredients you buy.
But it can be hard to put a price tag on the thoughtfulness of a homemade gift.
In this recipe, the crunchy crackers are studded with chewy dried fruit, fragrant rosemary, crunchy nuts and seeds and honey of course.
It is truly a delectable accompaniment to a soft, fresh, lemony goat cheese.
But if you would rather not make these yourself, try these delicious crisps from Jan’s Farmhouse (on Amazon) or Rustic Bakery.
2. The Classic Caramel Jar
This traditional goat’s milk caramel (on Amazon) is truly divine. Rich, oh so creamy, slightly tangy from the goat milk, and not too sweet.To make this a special gift, write or type up a recipe for goat cheese cheesecake on a card and tie it around the jar neck with a ribbon or some twine. You can recommend to serve it with a finishing touch of this beautiful caramel over the top of the cheesecake.
To help you out, we found a couple of delicious looking recipes (Goat Cheese Cheesecake with Rosemary Caramel and Goat Cheese Cheesecake W/Caramel Sauce & English Walnuts) or you can choose to write your own. What a sweet gift!
3. Raw Honey from Greece and Spain
From $7.49 to $9.00 from Cheese Companion
Honey and goat cheese go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly in a PB&J sandwich! The tang of goat cheese is both tempered and highlighted when paired with a smooth, sweet honey like the ones we import from Greece and Spain.
There are a lot of jars of honey in this big, beautiful world, and we spent a great deal of time finding one we knew was special.
