Fat Free Feta

The intentions were very good, but the outcome wasn't impressive. That was the case with a fat free feta cheese that shall remain unnamed. Yes, yes, I know that fat free cheese is a complete oxymoron, but it was the start of the year, the time when one is trying to curb calories, and sometimes ready to sacrifice taste.

The taste isn't bad, but isn't great. No tang, no texture, none of that saltiness that comes with a good feta. I am not discounting it completely, and will continue to use it in salads, which will appear here from time to time, but otherwise, it is a lesson learned, for sure.

Apple Chutney and Feta Spread

To see if it could be redeemed in some way I made a small amount of spread by processing the cheese together with some Apple Chutney, and it makes for a decent accompaniment to crackers for a small snack, but nothing to write home about.

We all have a similar stories like this. It takes guts to blog about flops. Kudos on that :)

Thanks!
Glad I read this post before I went shopping today.
Seeing a tub of the FFF right next to the regular kind, I would've been curious.

Suganya, don't encourage me so. :-) I can write reams on flops!

tc, curiosity is what makes me buy these things, even when I can half anticipate what they will be like.

sia, hi! This is a perfect example of how something good looking doesn't necessarily taste good.

richa, so, have you made the chutney yet? You said you had all the ingredients.

cynthia, I am happy that it helps to caution someone who might be considering such things.

I was wondering how feta can be fat free. It is really a good recipe especially for those who are on diet. I hope feta tastes really good.
