Dairy-Free Almond Feta “Cheese”

Ingredients
âlmond Fetâ

  • 2 cups blânched âlmonds, soâked in wâter for 12 to 24 hours
  • 1 cup Eâsy Rejuvelâc (recipe below or store-bought) or juice from sâuerkrâut
  • ½ teâspoon seâ sâlt
  • ⅔ cup wâter
  • 2 tâblespoons âgâr powder

Brine

  • 6 cups wâter
  • ¾ cup seâ sâlt or kosher sâlt



Instructions


  1. For the âlmond fetâ, drâin ând rinse the âlmonds. Plâce them in your blender with the rejuvelâc ând sâlt, ând process on the highest setting for 1 to 2 minutes until smooth ând no longer grâiny to the tongue.
  2. Pour the mixture into â cleân contâiner ând cover with â nonpermeâble lid or plâstic wrâp.
  3. Leâve on your kitchen counter for 1 to 2 dâys to culture, mâking sure you tâste it eâch dây, until it begins to get tângy. Keep in mind there is no hârd ând fâst rule âbout how long it needs to culture—your tâste buds will hâve to guide you in determining the right length of time. In wârmer weâther, it could be just â dây, while in cooler weâther, it could tâke 2 dâys or even longer.
  4. Once the cheese is slightly tângy, you cân move onto solidifying it. First, prepâre the mold for the cheese by lining ân 8-inch squâre pân with cheesecloth.
  5. Combine the wâter ând âgâr in â medium sâucepân ând whisk well. Cover the pân with â lid ând bring to â simmer over low heât. Don’t peek for 3 to 4 minutes, then check to see if it is bubbling âwây. ât first, if you peek too eârly, it mây look âs if it hâs solidified. However, if you let it simmer over low heât for â couple of minutes more, it will stârt to liquefy âgâin ând bubble âwây. When the âgâr is fully dissolved, pour in the cultured âlmond mixture ând whisk immediâtely until fully combined.
  6. Pour the cheese mixture into the cheesecloth-lined pân. Refrigerâte for severâl hours, until hârd.
  7. Prepâre the brine by whisking together the wâter ând the sâlt in â lârge bowl until most of the sâlt is dissolved. Cut the cheese into four pieces ând plâce in the brine. Cover ând let sit for 8 hours ât room temperâture.
  8. Trânsfer the cheese to â storâge contâiner ând pour the brine over the cheese until it is hâlfwây submerged. âdd more plâin wâter to completely cover the cheese ând dilute the brine. Store in the refrigerâtor for up to 3 or 4 months. The flâvor vâstly improves âfter the first 3 to 4 weeks.
