Lantanaland experimentation.

I make a soft feta when I don't have time to make a more interesting cheese, which with a newborn around and all the other farm jobs is pretty much all the time. I do get bored easily though and when I was cutting and salting the cheese this arvo I had an idea to combine it with one of my favourite food items, preserved lemons.

I dry salt the cheese at first anyway, to firm it up a little, before adding water to make the brine. So I placed a layer of sliced lemons under the cheese, well coated in salt. I love citrus and can't wait till my trees at Lantanaland are big enough to supply me year round. Will it work? Doesn't matter if it fails, but if it is good, genius!
