- 3 cups Champagne vinegar or white balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons coriander seeds
- 2 tablespoons mustard seeds
- 1 medium shallot, sliced
- 4 whole garlic cloves
- 4 sprigs cilantro
- 2 pounds feta, diced or crumbled (roughly 6 1/2 cups)
Combine the vinegar, 3 cups of water, sugar, coriander seeds, mustard seeds, shallot, garlic and cilantro in a small saucepan.
Bring the pickling liquid to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce to a simmer and allow the contents to cook for 5 minutes.
Remove the pot from the heat and let it cool completely.
Place the feta in a large mixing bowl or divide it between two 1-quart jars, and pour the cool pickling solution over the cheese.
Make sure all of the feta is completely submerged. (If you use quart jars, you will have a little bit of extra brine left over, which you can use for a salad dressing.)
Cover the feta and refrigerate it for at least five days.
Proud of my Italian oils I had a little reticence in trying a Moroccan oil. With my big surprise I found it really delicious. I used it raw, but I’ve to admit, it’s great for frying too. It has very hi smoke point that makes my ‘fritto misto’ lovely golden and crunchy. I highly recommend it!

I bought this oil as I was attracted by its elegant and unusual bottle. Such a precious container had to contain a very special product and I was right! The bottle on your table is a pleasure for your eyes and when you pour it, pervasive perfumes invites your dining companions to taste it and they feel privileged to savor such a rare nectar. My guests are special and I love being a perfect gracious hostess.
I discovered this great oil when looking for a good oil for my olive oil ice cream. It resulted to be the best one. Now I use it as a topping to add savory complexity to many of my sweet treats. Delicious!
