Layer feta cubes with garlic, peppercorns and hot peppers in a clean 1 quart jar. Stir salt into olive oil, then top feta, alternating with canola oil in turns to combine. It’s important that the oil cover the feta completely. Add remaining garlic and herb sprigs, for a pretty presentation slip them into the jar along the sides using a thin flat spatula or chop stick to help push them in to place. Squeeze fresh lemon juice on top.
