About this recipe: Olive oil infused with an abundance of Mediterranean herbs. Perfect to give as a gift as part of a hamper for Christmas.
To ensure your oil is flavoursome, bruise the herbs slightly before placing in the bottle. Additionally, after rinsing the herbs, ensure that they are 100% dry before combining with the oil. After infusing for 2 to 3 days, the oil will be ready to use.
Altered ingredient amounts. I've done this many times but I've also included coloured whole pepper, slivers of garlic and a couple of chillis cut down the middle to give it a bit of bite. Shake daily for a month to ensure the flavour is distributed through out the oil - makes great gifts - 24 Nov 2010
