Gently pound your thyme, rosemary, and lemon with a mallet to release their flavors while still keeping them intact.
Place a sprig of thyme, a sprig of rosemary and a few peppercorns in the bottom of a clean 2-cup glass mason jar. Gently add a few cubes of feta.
As you fill the jar with cheese, layer in your herbs, peppercorns, lemon zest, pepper flakes, etc. between every few cubes so that the flavors are intermingled throughout the jar. Fill the jar to the top with cheese, herbs, and spices.
Once full, pour in olive oil. Put on the lid and give it a couple of gentle shakes.
Let this feta marinate in the refrigerator a couple of days before you dive into it, the longer it sits, the more flavorful it is!
Keep refrigerated and use within 2-3 weeks – if you can keep it around that long!
Helpful Tip: Because the olive oil will become solid in the refrigerator, remove and let it return to room temperature about an hour before serving.
