Tips
  • Keep refrigerated and covered in brine contained in package.
  • If additional brine is needed, mix one pound of salt (preferably kosher) with one gallon of water — milk may also be used instead of brine.
  • If mold appears on the feta cheese, discard it entirely.
  • To freeze, drain feta and wrap tightly in plastic freezer wrap or place in heavy-duty freezer bag.
  • Frozen feta may lose some of its texture and flavor; the thawed cheese will be best suited to cooked dishes, such as sauces, soups and casseroles.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
