I store my boccocini in milk - that is what they told me at my local italian store that makes it from scratch.

Feta should be stored in an airtight container with a 1/4 cup or so of brine.

Make sure the brine covers the whole chunk of cheese.

Replace the brine for the feta every 2 or 3 days and

it will last a very long time.
