Caramelized Onion Chèvre Spread

  • 1 lb Lively Run Chèvre
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 tsp fresh tarragon
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

First, finely dice the onion. Next, melt the butter in a small skillet over low to medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add the onions to the skillet and caramelize them over low to medium heat. This should take at least 15 minutes and should be done slowly so as not to burn the onions. Feel free to add more butter if necessary. Add freshly ground black pepper to taste to the onions. Once the onions have caramelized, remove them from the heat and set them aside to cool. In a mixing bowl, mix the cheese with the tarragon. Add the caramelized onions and slowly fold them into the cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste. This is a great recipe to experiment with. Feel free to try other herbs or spices. This makes a delicious spread for bagels or to put on crackers and can also be used as a stuffing for Ravioli or other pasta.
