RECIPE FOR GOAT CHEESE IN A JAR
Title:Goat Cheese In A Jar
Category:Jar Mix
Goat Cheese in a Jar

Makes enough to fill a 10- or 12-ounce jar

You can use any size jar for this appetizer. If you give it as gifts, make it a day or two before you give it and keep it refrigerated.

1 clean (10- to 12-ounce) jar with a tight-fitting lid
1 to 1 1/4 cups olive oil (see note)
1 (3.5 to 5 ounce) log goat cheese, cut into 1/2-inch thick coins
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes in oil
1/8 cup fresh basil, torn in thumbnail-size pieces
2 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves
2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts (see note)

Pour enough olive oil to cover the bottom of your jar. Carefully lower in a goat-cheese round. Sprinkle in some of the garlic, the sun-dried tomatoes, the herbs and the pine nuts. Cover with oil and repeat the process in layers until the jar is full to within 1/2 inch of the top, making sure that all is covered with the oil.

Let sit in the refrigerator for a day to mellow. It will keep for 10 days to two weeks in the refrigerator.

To serve, spoon out a portion of the appetizer into a pretty, shallow bowl and serve with cubed bread to smear it on. It can also be tossed into hot, drained pasta. Top the pasta with freshly ground black pepper and parmesan cheese.

NOTE: To toast nuts, heat in a dry skillet over medium heat until they start to brown. Stir occasionally, being careful not to scorch them.
