Marinated Goat Cheese with Sun-Dried Tomatoes
Serves 4 as an appetizer
1 – 2 cups fruity olive oil, enough to completely cover cheese
10 black peppercorns
2 sprigs fresh rosemary, or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves, crumbled
2 sprigs fresh sage, or 1 teaspoon dried sage leaves, crumbled
2 sprigs fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves, crumbled
3 – 4 whole garlic cloves, peeled
½ cup sun-dried tomatoes
2 small goat cheeses
Combine ¼ cup of the oil, the peppercorns, herbs and garlic in a small saucepan. Heat until warm. Let cool. Arrange a few of the sun-dried tomatoes on the bottom of a mason jar or similar wide-mouth container that is a little larger than the cheeses. Place the goat cheeses in jar and arrange the remaining sun-dried tomatoes around them. Pour the cooled olive oil with herbs, garlic and peppercorns over the cheeses. Add enough additional olive oil to completely cover. Marinate, covered, in a cool place for several hours or refrigerate for several days.
