    1. Place basil, thyme, rosemary and oregano in a 330ml (12 oz) bottle. Using a funnel, pour oil into bottle. Cover tightly and refrigerate for up to 1 month.

    Tip:

    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
