Honeyed Goat Cheese with Dried Fruit and Walnuts


1 litre/quart goats milk
1/2 lemon, juice of

1 tablespoon honey (or to taste)
1/4 cup dried fruit, finely chopped (e.g. apricots, cranberries, figs)
1/4 cup roasted walnuts, finely chopped

extras: cheese cloth or clean kitchen towel

Serves 4-6
Bring goat milk to a boil over medium heat. Take off the heat. Immediately stir in the lemon juice. Leave standing for about a few minutes, so the milk can curdle. Pour the milk lemon mixture into the cheese cloth (or alternatively a clean kitchen cotton towel), that has been laid out in a bowl. Tie the ends of the cloth together so it becomes a bag. Hang it on a wooden spoon and let the bag hang free over the bowl. The whey should be able to strain out of the cheese cloth for at least two hours.
Before taking the cheese out of the cloth, squeeze the cloth itself to extract more liquid from the cheese. Transfer the cheese from the cloth to a bowl. Stir in the honey, dried fruits and walnuts. Ready to serve.
