250gr Feta cheese cut in cubes
fresh sage leaves
red hot chili pepper, slices, kernels removed
extra virgin olive oil - maybe a littel more
Put 1/3 of feta cubes in a jar.
Add 1/3 of fresh herbs, chili and garlic.
Repeat procedure till all ingredients used.
Pour the olive oil: depending on the jar size you may need a little more, as it needs to cover the feta cubes.
Close the jar and slightly shake it up and down, left and right.
Keep it in the fridge or in a dark corner of the pantry.
Taste is best after 5-7 days, but 3 days will do too.
Oil may thicken in the fridge. It will become fluid when taken out for 30 minutes.
Note: Before using the herbs, press them lightly between your fingers or with a wooden spoon to help them release their flavors.
