Another way to avoid the saltiness is to cut it into cubes after the initial brining and store in a jar with oil and fresh herbs. That way, it can be eaten as part of a cheese plate!

Is that just olive oil? how long will it last like that? Yum.

Yes BWS, olive oil. I like the flavour of EV olive oil, but it does freeze in the refrigerator. Some forum members have suggested a canola/olive oil blend to prevent that (1olive to 3 canola), but I haven't tried it yet.

My guess is they will keep for many months like that, but they usually get eaten within 2 months! (sometimes they don't even last a week!)  ;D

I have never had that problem. I use my whey to brine in. I add nothing.
