How to make it

These Ragstone Log and pistachio balls make an excellent starter, or a snack for evening entertaining. The tangy, creamy Ragstone goat’s cheese is well complimented by the savoury, salty, nutty pistachio flavours, and the green colour really adds some pizzazz!

  • In a food mixer, blend the cheese and butter until smooth
  • Add the anchovies, watercress, herbs, chives and salt
  • Line a muffin tin with either cling film or cake cases
  • Use an icecream scoop to create balls of mixture
  • Chill for at least 3 hours
  • When ready to serve, roll balls in pistachio mix and top with a sprig of watercress leaves
