  • Divide goat cheese mixture into 3 equal portions. Using an offset spatula, carefully spread one portion of the goat cheese mixture over the bottom of the prepared terrine mold; top with pesto, spreading evenly to cover.

  • Spread a second portion of goat cheese mixture on top of the pesto and top with jam, spreading evenly to cover. Top with remaining portion of goat cheese mixture; cover with plastic wrap. Transfer to refrigerator and chill until firm. Slice crosswise and serve with crackers.

Having lived in Nantucket and visited Sfoglia, I was surprised to hearn that the Owens used to keep their goats at the property that was my family's inn/farm.

Cannot find Mesophillic DVI anywhere, no even on your web site. No one knows what it is or how to use it. Please help.

thanks for revising recipe. since it can be sliced, does that mean it can be turned out onto a plate before slicing?

I've been making a recipe similar to this with cream cheese and its always a hit at parties, I can't wait to try it with goat cheese. Other flavor combinations work well too, basil pesto and sun dried tomato is really good as well

There seems to be a duplication of step 3 and the first step has been omitted. We would like to try the recipe but with this error, we can't

Martha will not be happy. I watched the show and wanted this recipe. You skipped all of the first step in placement of the layers. Shame on you.

Step 3 is incorrect and needs to be changed!
