Marinated Feta Cheese
Make your own marinated feta cheese at home with just a few simple ingredients. Turn regular feta cheese into something incredible!
Servings 6 people
- 12 oz olive oil
- 2 Tbsp fresh tarragon chopped
- 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes or, 2-3 chile de arbol
- 1 tsp black peppercorns
- 8 oz feta cheese cut into cubes
Layer the feta cubes and fresh tarragon (or herbs of choice) in canning jars.
Combine the oil, pepper flakes (or chile de arbol), and peppercorns in a measuring cup. Pour over the feta taking care to cover completely.
Center your canning lid and ring on each jar. Tighten, and allow to marinate at room temperature for at least 4 hours (if not longer).
Refrigerate the marinated feta after 12 hours. Marinated feta may congeal when refrigerated - just bring to room temperature before enjoying.
- Don't like Tarragon? Feel free to substitute with your choice of fresh herbs - Rosemary, Thyme, or even Sage.
