New from Meyenberg -- Goat Milk Cream Cheese!

Meyenberg Goat Milk Products was awarded First Place in The American Cheese Society’s 2005 Annual Cheese Competition for its European Style Goat Milk Butter.

Compound Butters using Meyenberg European Style Goat Milk Butter add flavor and moisture to beef steaks, pork, poultry and seafood dishes. This is an example of how the pros do it.

Parsley & Garlic Goat Butter

Combine with white wine to steam mussels and/or clams. To use as a pasta sauce, combine with extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese, or combine with white wine, salt and pepper and reduce over moderate heat until thickened. Additional ingredients can be used, such as capers, olives, herbs, etc.

1 pound European Style Goat Milk Butter
4 Tablespoons Italian parsley, chopped
3 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt

Let the goat butter come to room temperature. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and mix until well blended.

Place a 10” piece of plastic wrap on a flat surface. Using a spatula, spread the compound butter on the wrap, forming a 2” thick cylinder. Fold the plastic wrap over, hold the ends and roll the butter to form a sausage-shaped roll, smoothing with your hands. Place the butter in the refrigerator until it hardens.

To use, peel the plastic back from one end and slice off what is needed. Can be stored for several weeks in the refrigerator by resealing the plastic wrap.

  Meyenberg Goat Milk

In the late 1800’s Swiss immigrant John B. Meyenberg discovered the process for evaporating cow’s milk. Later, his son, John P. Meyenberg, who could not drink cow’s milk, was motivated to find an alternative. On a farm in the green hills of Santa Barbara, California he discovered that goat’s milk has a delicious taste, is naturally homogenized, and is easy on the stomach. In 1934, he was the first American to evaporate goat’s milk, and the Meyenberg family tradition of producing quality goat milk continues today.

Health and nutrition issues have fueled an interest in unique natural products, and there is growing demand for foods that are 100% natural. Meyenberg Goat Milk contains no preservatives and is free of antibiotics and Bovine Growth Hormones (rBGH/BST). Meyenberg Goat Milk contains more calcium, vitamin A, vitamin B6, and potassium than cow milk.

The fatty acid and protein structure of goat milk is different than cow milk, making it very easy to digest. It contains only trace amounts of the cow milk protein that some people are allergic to. That's why many who are lactose intolerant can drink goat milk.

Gourmet chefs find that Meyenberg Goat Milk products can be substituted for any recipe that calls for milk, and give a dish a distinctly original flavor.

New Meyenberg products include European-Style Goat Milk Butter and a variety of Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses. The introduction of European style cow milk butters began in the US in the late 1990s, but a widespread demand for out-of-the-ordinary butter caught on in 2000. Gourmet butters are becoming a popular cooking ingredient for adventurous home cooks as well as professional chefs.

A distinctive characteristic of the new European style Meyenberg Goat Milk Butter is its pure white color due to the absence of carotene. It’s melting point is lower than regular butter, which makes it a smoother spread and gives it a wide range of uses, including sauces, baking and sautéing. Since it is only lightly salted, it can be used in recipes calling for salted or unsalted butter. The delightful creamy taste of this unique Goat Milk Butter has an authentic rural flavor.

Meyenberg Goat Milk is introducing a line of goat milk cheeses. Varieties include white goat cheddar, plain jack, garlic and chive jack, and jalapeño jack.

Carol Jackson, the latest generation at the helm of the company states, “We are proud of the heritage that began over 70 years ago, and also proud to be innovating new products. We have kept the family pledge to bring to you the same, natural, richly delicious goat milk that our family has enjoyed for three generations.”
