  • 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.
