Holiday Chèvre Log


  • 1/4 cup pecans, lightly toasted
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, lightly toasted
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 8 oz. log of firm chèvre
  • local honey for drizzling


  • Lightly toast pecans and pumpkin seeds in a pan over medium-low heat, stirring often, until pecans are lightly toasted and pumpkin seeds begin to pop.
  • Remove from heat immediately as they can burn quickly.
  • Place pecans, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, and salt in the small bowl of a food processor. Pulse until a very coarse meal is formed.
  • Pour the nut mixture onto a plate and roll the chèvre into it, patting and pressing the mixture onto the outside of the cheese to form a nice crust.
  • Place the well-coated cheese onto your charcuterie board and drizzle liberally with local honey.
