What do you do with the brine from feta? I go through a lot of the cheese, and at the middle Eastern store I saw people buying cups of just the brine. What gives?

They're probably just topping up whatever container they're using to store their block of cheese. Our local Middle Eastern/Mediterranean supermarket actually charges you extra for brine when you buy a block of feta, otherwise they just wrap the cheese itself.

I asked my (Greek-American) wife if people cooked with the brine itself and her response was basically "no, that's gross" I've heard of people adding some to salad dressings but it's basically salt water so presumably you're not going to be adding cups of it.

I would never shop at Costco. The paper towels won't fit into my sports car!

Ok, I suppose that makes some sense. I can't imagine anyone having feta around long enough that they need to top up the brine, though.
