Htipiti (pronounced h-tee-pee-TEE and translated as "that which is beaten")
is the name Macedonians gave to this tart feta spread. The longer it is
beaten, the more tart it will be.

In medium-size bowl, mash feta with fork or potato masher and slowly add
olive oil, chopped peppers, oregano, and black pepper. Pulverize mixture
for about 10 minutes (less if using a food processor), pouring in lemon
juice a little at a time, until feta is creamy. Cover and refrigerate at
least 1 hour before serving. Yields about 1 cup.
