Home made marinated feta cheese

Today I'm going to show you how to make your own home made marinated feta cheese.
This is terribly easy, and feta is not the only thing you can marinade like this. There's a whole bunch of things this works with, for example olives, chilli or garlic.
This is what you'll need:

You'll need some feta cheese (or whatever you'd like to marinade),
A big seal-tight glass jar
And olive oil (you'll need a lot of it, and the better the olive oil is, the better the end-result will be)

And here are some ideas for marinating ingredients:

Whole black peppercorns
Fresh dill
Fresh rosemary or thyme

And now here's what you do - it's so simple:
Slowly fill the jar with feta (or olives), and then for every layer you add the marinating ingredients
- I used whole black peppercorns and rosemary.
Fill the jar, and then when you're done, slowly add the olive oil. It is very important that you fill the jar with olive oil, so that it covers the feta completely.

Some people say that you don't need to keep the jar refrigerated, but then you should remember that the feta - or olives - can only keep for about two days. What I do is, that I put the jar in the fridge. Not only is it nice that the feta is cooled when you eat it, but also, if refrigerated, the jar of feta, olives, chillies or garlic can keep for up to two weeks.
