making feta today

  1. So far it looks great, it is now cut in half, sprinkled with salt, and resting in a covered glass dish. I want to marinate it.
    I'm not sure, reading the recipe in the sticky, if it needs to be in the fridge 5-7 days before marinating or if I can cube and marinate it tomorrow.
    I made some awesoem crea cheese like chevre this AM too!

    Hi Becky,

    Sorry I missed this yesterday. If you keep it in the fridge it will continue to develop flavor. Once it reaches the flavor that you want it is ready to marinate.


  3. Thanks Christy. I broke it up today, it tastes so good! I could have eaten it all. :) I put some in maranade and some not so I can try it both ways. I am defintely making more.
