Herbs and spices add interesting flavor to mild oil. Before pouring the infused oil into bottles, replace the fresh herbs; they will darken while steeping in the warm oil. Use in salad dressings and sauces, or drizzle on grilled chicken, fish, and bread, or sautéed greens, mushrooms, or zucchini.

How to Make It

Step 1

Pour oil in a small saucepan over very low heat; add remaining ingredients, and cook 10 minutes or just until oil is very warm but not boiling (about 150°). Remove from heat; let stand 1 hour or until completely cool.

Step 2

Pour oil into a bottle using a funnel. Cover and store oil in refrigerator up to 2 weeks; discard any unused portion.
