Tonight we made some infused Olive Oil – as you do. They’re really simple to do, and it makes a delicious alternative to the plain stuff.
We made one Basil Oil and one Chilli and Garlic. These are great for cooking fish or delicate meat, and they make yummy salad dressing…
But these are just two ideas – why not try adding orange peel, rosemary and garlic, or roasted tomato and red pepper.
** Note: Be sure to use dried herbs and spices in your Olive Oil. Otherwise, whatever you add will still have a high water content, and although olive oil doesn’t allow the growth of bacteria, the water in anything you’ve thrown in does.
