Hello everyone – I hope you are doing well. I know what you must be thinking right now: “Another lilac recipe? Nooooo! Stop it Ben. Enough is enough.”
Indeed, I understand you. Basically, all June I’ve been sharing with you these lilac ideas. As the matter of fact, the lilac season is over, but I still have a couple of ideas. Don’t you worry though. I will only post one of them, and that’s it. However, the hardest part would be to decide which one. Lilac lemonade, lilac jello shots, or lilac popsicles. Even though I am considering lemonade, those Lilac jello shots pictures are pretty lovely. Hard to decide. What would you choose?
So far, I have shared seventh ides. Eighth with this spread.
Blackberry Lilac Goat Cheese
Finally, I am sharing some savoury idea. Or sweet and savoury, precisely. Do you love goat’s cheese? How do you feel about those goat cheese logs coated into some sweet ingredients such as dried cranberries and blueberries? If you love it, you are going to like this Blackberry Lilac Goat Cheese spread, too. The major difference is that my idea is a thinner version, more like a dip.
Also, it uses lilac syrup for a subtle lilac flavour. It’s not very obvious, though. If you don’t have any prepared syrup (And you desperately want to try this spread), that’s okay. You can make lavender simple syrup instead. Or simply use maple syrup of runny honey in place of the lilac syrup. Either way, you are going to enjoy it!
I hope you like this appetizer idea, and you will give it a try, if not this season (Might be too late), next year for sure. If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen. Also don’t forget to make some lilac syrup as you might want to have for my upcoming recipes!

250 to 300 gr. plain goat’s cheese
2-4 tbsp. of lilac syrup, divided – See notes
1/2 to 2/3 cup of fresh blackberries
1 tsp. fresh thyme
- Using a blender, pure the goat’s cheese with most of the blackberries (reserve a few for garnish), thyme, and 2 tablespoons of the lilac syrup, until the desired consistency (Either well-combined and smooth or chucky.)
- Spread the goat cheese on the serving plate. Drizzle with 1-2 tablespoons of syrup more and garnish with the remaining blackberries. Serve immediately with crackers or baguette. Refrigerate the leftovers for up to 2 days, covered. Enjoy!
- Use 2 tablespoons for a thicker version, and 3-4 for a thinner spread. You can use even one tablespoon, but the flavour would be barely present. Instead of the lilac syrup, you can use maple syrup, honey, or other infused simple syrup like lavender.
