1 tsp black peppercorns

zest and juice from one lemon

zest and juice from one orange

pinch of red pepper flakes

1 block feta cheese, cut into cubes

2. Layer the feta cubes and herbed oil into jars, making sure the feta is fully submerged. Marinate at room temperature for 3 or more hours (not more than 8 hours)
