When this recipe showed up on my twitter feed via @kitchenconfidante, my mouth instantly drooled. I couldn’t hit the “print recipe” fast enough. What’s surprising is that I’ve never had goat cheese or blueberry vanilla compote before. But it doesn’t take a “Mario Batali” to realize just how delicious this combination was going to taste in one’s mouth. And it was super fast and easy to make. If you can pour and stir, then you can make this in 15 minutes.
I will admit, 15 minutes isn’t a very long time at all, but it felt like time was painfully dragging due to my anticipation of that very first bite. My perception of time looked a lot like this [click here]. lol Suffice it to say, this was absolutely delicious. I brought some into work the next day and everyone loved it as well.
And because I am so generous and unselfish, I didn’t think it would be fair to keep such a gem from my friends … I reached out to @kitchenconfidante and with her blessing, I share it with you. I encourage you to visit Kitchen Confidante for more fabulous recipes.
Makes 1 cup.
- 8 oz goat cheese
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1/4 cup apple juice
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Crackers for serving
In a small sauce pan over medium heat, stir together blueberries, apple juice and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil then lower heat and simmer for about 10-15 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. Stir in the vanilla. Allow the compote to cool before using. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Using your hands, form the goat cheese into your desired shape (ball, log, etc.). Make certain the compote is completely chilled before pouring over the cheese. Serve with crackers and enjoy!
