Our Turkish school cleaners made CC a meal while we were gone. They also brought over this enormous two-and-a-half gallon jar of homemade goat cheese floating in water.I'll admit, I was a little scared of it at first. Goodness, it has to be turned sideways just to fit in my fridge. I did taste it. S.T.R.O.N.G. But then after about a week, I decided I could no longer pretend this floating goat cheese was not taking up 1/3 of my fridge. I would need to deal with it. I mean, how much would this amount of feta cheese cost back in America?! So, finally, I took out one block and put it in water all day long. That strained off some of the S.T.R.O.N.G. flavor as well as some of the salt. That evening, I sliced it into squares and put it with fresh, ripe tomatoes as a side dish. Big Ben inhaled it. I kept saying, "Chew the first piece before you eat another!" So, our usage of the floating goat cheese has begun. Nothing like an enormous jar of cheese to say, "Welcome back!"
