Bottled feta

  • Marinated feta cheeseStore-bought feta (or make your own with a special cheese-making kit)
  • Fresh sprigs of herbs (choose from dill, thyme, rosemary, oregano and marjoram)
  • Chilli flakes
  • 1 or 2 cloves of garlic, sliced
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, to fill bottle
  • Optional: olives, coriander seeds, peppercorns, Szechuan pepper, roasted capsicum)

Fill a jar or wide-necked bottle with your feta, herbs and spices, layering everything as you go. Fill the jar with olive oil. Seal and leave for 2-3 weeks before using, to allow flavours to develop. The longer you leave it, the more flavoursome it will be. Can be left for up to 6 months.

Quick feta and avocado salad
