Spicy Thyme and Garlic Oil

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell

Pour the oil into a decorative glass bottle, then package it with a fresh baguette, a small dipping bowl for the oil, and some colorful napkins in a beautiful basket for a memorable gift. Be careful not to let the oil temperature rise above 220°; too much heat could ruin the flavor.
