This is for the people who like it hot.
Step 1: Get the Ingredients
This is a very simple recipe.
You will need:
- Feta cheese
- Chili peppers
- Olive oil
- Pepper seeds
... and don't forget the Jar
Step 2: Cut the Peppers
As you can see in the pictures I've used different colour peppers. Those are not all different types of peppres. The purple ones are not fully ripe. When they ripe, some of them turn into red ones and some turn into orange ones. The white ones, they turn into short red ones (chili). I wanted to use different colors to ge a much cooler looking jar in the end.
After you've cut the peppers , you can cut the feta cheese in small cube pieces.
Step 3: Fill the Jar
The idea is to put a layer of peppers an a layer of cheese.
First start with the pepper seeds and a bit rosemary. Tha last time I've made this I was very generous with the rosemary...the taste was not that good. So be carefull with this. Put just a small quantity or if you're not sure how much to put, you can leave it out.
Next put a layer of cut peppers. As you can see I've started with the red ones. I wanted to get a cool efect. After this add a layer of feta chese and another layer of peppers. This time I've put the purple ones. Continue doing these until you've filled the jar.
The jar I've used was not that big as you can see. I had four layer of pepper (red, purple, orange and white mixed with some red ) and three layers of cheese.
When the jar is filled put some more pepper seeds and pour the olive oil until you cover everything.
Put the lid and you are finished.
Step 4: Store It
You will have to wait a few weeks so that the cheese will catch all the aroma but it will be worth it. Don't worry about it going bad. This won't happen.
Back in the days , when there wasn't any refrigerators, there where some methods to keep your food from going bad:
- dry it
- cover it in salt and dry it
- cover it in fat (blubber)
This last method is based on the fact that the fat stops the food from getting air and going bad. In our case the olive oil does the same thing + it has a nice flavour.
Hint: If you don't like to eat spicy food, or if you are alergic to some ingredients, you can still make this and use it to decorate your kitchen.
