- 250 g of high quality goat milk yogurt (be sure it is without added sugar)
- “Frà Evaristo” extra virgin olive oil
- Fior di Sale ("Fleur de sel")
- Mild chili pepper
HOW TO DO IT
- Line a colander with two or three layers of sterile gauze and place it onto a bowl.
- Gently stir the yogurt and spoon it into the colander, pull the sterile cotton corners and tied up.
- Put the yogurt (together with colander and bowl) into the fridge, cover with a plate and let it rest for about 24 hours. During this time the whey will drain and the yogurt will thicken to a soft, creamy cheese with a delicious and fresh flavor.
- After 24 hours, remove the bowl with the colander containing your “homemade soft goat cheese” from the fridge, unfold the gauze and transfer to a serving plate.
- Drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil, a pinch of “fior di sale” and mild chili pepper.
- Now you are ready to dip soft goat cheese with a slice of bread or, even better, a slice of warm Crescia.
