Homemade Feta Cheese

This past week Adam tried his hand at making feta cheese. He used whole milk and yogurt from the grocery store.
At this point he is pressing and straining the cheese through a cotton cloth, after cooking it on the stove.

He pressed it even more by putting it into a large can, having removed the two ends, placing a smaller can on top, and putting heavy books on it.
It will last in the frig for a while, but the first recipe he tried it on was a Marguerita pizza. It was soft, creamy, and very good.

  2. My daughter-in-law will be learning to make mozzarella. I've never tried anything like this. I got hungry seeing that lovely pizza with the homemade cheese!
