I made some feta yesterday.
I've made this numerous times before, but hadn't for a while as the last batch I made was gigantic and lasted ages in oil. We've only just finished it.
Here's the links to the recipes and previous feta making
Brining the feta
Bottling feta in oil
This time I didn't have any milk straight from the cow, so I had to make do with supermarket milk. I got 4 l of full fat milk. Then I just scaled the recipe down a smidge. It worked perfectly. I'm also doing the air drying again as it worked so well last time. At the moment the feta is sitting out on the worktop, under a food cover. I'll leave it there until at least tomorrow, maybe longer.
These pots are not specifically for cheese making but they are absolutely perfect for feta. They have a little hook on the side so you can hang them on the pot for draining purposes. When it's time for brining I just take them out of the wee baskets, put them in the pot with some brine and then put the lid on. They might even all fit in one pot - less room taken up in the fridge!
Obviously we won't have this for Christmas! But when it's ready I'm sure it'll be as lovely as ever.
