Organic Crumbled Feta Cheese
When our customers talk, we listen. And organic cheeses have been on our customers’ minds. Based on the continued success of crumbled cheeses in our stores, our Product Developer was happy to oblige customer requests, while at the same time creating a first-of-its-kind product (on our cheese shelves, at least). Please welcome Trader Joe’s Organic Crumbled Feta Cheese!
While traditional feta is made with sheep’s milk, our Organic Crumbled Feta is made in Wisconsin with organic, rBST-free cow’s milk. The cow’s milk offers a milder flavor than sheep’s milk, while retaining the pleasant tanginess so favored by feta fans.
The curds are bathed in a salty brine (think of it as pickling, but with cheese instead of cucumbers), then drained, gently pressed and dried to allow the saltiness to infuse throughout. This process creates a buttery tanginess and a slightly firm texture that crumbles with ease. Crumbly, briny Cheese made with organic milk? Be still our palates!
Although a handful of Crumbled Feta atop a crisp romaine salad is a wonderful thing, there’s an endless number of ways to enjoy its salty goodness outside of leafy greens. Stir it into rigatoni with sausage, white beans, and kale. Mix it with TJ’s Fresh Bruschetta and Steamed Lentils for a quick appetizer or dip. Or, gently warm some Giant Chalkidiki Olives in olive oil with chili flakes and lemon peel, then pour the mixture over a shallow bowl of Organic Crumbled Feta Cheese, and serve with crusty bread for dipping.
At $3.49 for six ounces, you may want to grab more than one tub to explore all the possibilities! Find this Organic Crumbled Feta in the cheese case at your neighborhood Trader Joe’s.
