Homemade Infused Olive Oil | Rosemary & Garlic

Monday, July 28, 2014

I love summer and all the fresh garden bounty that it brings.  To bottle up the freshness of summer and to make evening dinners a breeze, I'm a huge fan of herb infused olive oil!  To make your own it's E. A. S. Y. and the possibilities are endless!

 When I say the possibilities are endless I mean it -
look at your herb garden & see what you've got!  
I decided to start with a Rosemary & Garlic Infused Olive Oil.
To make you'll need an airtight container, extra virgin olive oil,
3-5 cloves of garlic and 4-6 sprigs of fresh rosemary.
Depending on how 'garlic-y' you want, add more or less garlic.
Using the backside of a wooden spoon smash your garlic cloves.
Over medium-high heat warm your olive oil, be careful that it doesn't boil.
Once olive oil is heated add smashed garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes.
Remove from heat and add 2-3 sprigs of Rosemary.  
Let cool for 5-8 minutes, then discard garlic & rosemary.
In your container add a couple fresh sprigs of rosemary, 
then pour in your warmed olive oil.
Be sure to store in the fridge to prevent botulism and keep for no longer than one week.
How fun & easy is that?!!
