This question talks about feta cheese in a brine or milk bath lasting up to three months. What about crumbled feta?
I was looking through the fridge, and found a 1/2 pound open container of crumbled feta. I have only used about an ounce of it. There is no sign of mold on it, and it smells like feta cheese. A small sample tasted okay. The amazing thing is that I bought it in October or November: 8-10 months ago!
I have a recipe that calls for almost a 1/2 pound of feta, and I will be the only one eating it (so I'm not trying to impress anybody!).
I dislike wasting food, but I dislike being sick even more!
Is it safe to use dry crumbled feta that is so old?
