Natural Delights Medjool Dates are a versatile ingredient in cooking and baking. They are very high in antioxidants, fibre, potassium and micro nutrients. Natural Delights Medjool Dates are a fresh fruit, available year-round in the produce section.
The coating for this goat cheese log not only include dates and pistachios but also parsley and thyme. The fruit, nuts and herbs can be blitzed together easily in a food processor and the mixture itself is fragrant and delicious.
Once blitzed, you just lay the mixture on some parchment before putting down the goat cheese. Use the parchment paper to help roll the goat cheese so that it is fully covered in the flavourful mixture.
You could serve the log as is but, if you prefer the log to be sliced, freeze the coated cheese for 20 to 30 minutes. The slicing is a lot easier that way. For those that love giving edible gifts, this cheese log is perfect for gifting! Just wrap it in something festive.
