Feta Cheese Brine is Slimy
I opened a carton of the Trader Joe's produce called Authentic Greek Feta from Sheep milk, packaged in brine. It was in my very cold fridge for quite some time, though the seal was not broken and the expire date is 3/18. The brine was viscous, which I have not seen before. The cheese has a tang like just spoiling milk, not pleasant. I did rinse the cheese and put it into fresh salted water. Anyone seen this before? Internet references only refer to slimy conditions when cheesemaking. I hope they take it back without a receipt, the stuff isn't cheap.
I wanted feta and watermelon with mint and lime for breakfast. Luckily I recently bought a batch from a middle east market so that should be okay.
