Mama’s Notes:


Fresh Herb Company lavender lemon goat cheese appetizer

Chop dried lavender if using

I love using vanilla bean honey when I can find it, however any honey will do.

The more honey you add the more this spread turns into a delicious dessert and be spread over cookies – yummmmy.

To make lavender lemon goat cheese your own:

  • add other fresh herbs
  • squeeze a little lemon juice into the spread
  • stir in some chopped almonds or walnuts

Our production crew ate up all that we made by the lavender field – it was that good. Have fun with it – make it your own. I would love to hear what you did to make this recipe your own. Let me know!
