Feta is pretty easy to make yourself but it is even easier to buy some ready made and give it your own personal touch.

Ingredients

• Feta
• 11g salt
• Coriander seeds
• Thyme
• Bay leaf
• Chilli flakes (optional)


1. Dissolve the salt in 800ml warm water and let it cool completely.

2. Slice your feta into cubes.

3. Fill a clean, sterilised jar with the feta cubes.

4. Put a handful of coriander seeds in a pestle and mortar and bash just to crack open and pour over feta.

5. Pop in a bay leaf or two and sprinkle over chopped (or dried) thyme and a teaspoon or two of chilli flakes (if using).

6. Pour in the cooled salt water solution to cover the feta.

7. Let sit for at least 4 days before eating, preferably with home-made crackers!
