Horseradish Goat Cheese

Once upon a time, there lived a lonely beet in my fridge. He stayed in the cool, dark vegetable draw for over 3 weeks, waiting patiently to be invited to the nightly dinner party. However, the only way he could be eaten was with a tart, creamy girlfriend to balance out his sweet, earthiness.

I didn’t feel like driving to the grocery store for just one ingredient. Luckily, a variety of local cheeses is sold at one of my jobs, Firelight Camps. I opened the camp store mini fridge, and browsed the selection: brie, cheddar…CHEVRE! We usually have plain or herbed in stock, but all that was left was horseradish…tons of it. I guess no one was brave enough to try it…until I came along.
