Nothing compares to the fresh taste of homemade cheese. And tangy, rich feta is one of the easiest to make at home. It’s also an excellent “summer” cheese, the perfect partner to all those ripe tomatoes and gorgeous cucumbers.
Traditionally made with sheep’s milk, feta is equally delicious when made from store-bought cow’s milk. What gives it the distinctive sharp taste and crumbly texture is a week or more spent soaking, or aging, in a brine. Once you get your first taste of homemade feta, you’ll agree it was worth the wait. For complete how-tos, watch our step-by-step video, and follow the Homemade Feta recipe.
