flavored olive oil...



i like to spice up my olive oil...vs. using it straight from the container. and i never buy them already flavored. not when it's much more economical...and so easy to make it yourself.

ingredients...
  • olive oil
  • crushed garlic cloves
  • red pepper flakes
  • rosemary

add all to non-metal pan. heat on low to a simmer. turn off flame. cover & cool.

let it cool over night to impart more flavor. strain and poor it into decorative containers.

use in salad dressing...on pasta...or when stir-frying.

*if you'd like to store herbs in the finished oil product...you must use dried herbs.

  1. Great shot. Like the idea of the stove top in the shot.
