Some easy goat cheese recipes are simple fresh goat cheese from Martha Stewart, Allrecipe's quick goat cheese and boysenberry wine compote with goat cheese and basil. To make simple fresh goat cheese, simmer 1 quart of goat milk to 180 degrees Fahrenheit, and whisk in the juice from 2 lemons before removing it from the heat. After 15 seconds, pour it through a cheesecloth, and allow it to drain for two hours. Stir in coarse salt and fresh herbs.
Make quick goat cheese by heating 4 quarts of goat's milk at medium until it reaches a gentle boil and then stirring in dried minced onion to taste and 1 pinch of salt. Remove the milk from the heat, and stir in 1/3 cup of distilled white vinegar. Once the milk curdles, ladle it onto a cheesecloth, and allow it to cool completely.
After making goat's cheese, use it in an easy recipe, such as boysenberry wine compote with goat cheese and basil. To make it, heat 1 1/2 cup of boysenberries or 3/4 cups each of raspberries and blackberries, 1/4 cup of fruity red wine, and 1/3 cup of sugar in a saucepan until it starts to boil, and simmer it on low until it's reduced to 2/3 cup. After seasoning the mixture with 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, serve it on crackers with goat cheese and fresh basil.
