Herb Infused Olive Oil

Items needed

  • colander
  • fresh herbs
  • clean glass bottle
  • cutting board
  • sharp knife
  • olive oil
  • salt
Rinse fresh-cut herbs in a colander.

First, chop up all of the herbs you’d like to add. I usually rinse them in a colander first. Since they are fresh, you never know what might have visited them before your chopping knife.

Then I use the base of a wooden spoon to push them into an old clean, wine or other type of glass bottle.

Use any kind of clear glass bottle for a beautiful view of the fresh ingredients.

If you are pretty good with pouring a large bottle of olive oil into a small container opening, free -hand, then go for it. If not, a funnel will help prevent spill over. You can add custom labels or just a pretty bow. These make great hostess or holiday gifts with a personal touch. You could even throw in a fresh loaf of bread for dipping in a fancy basket
