Herb-infused oils are a wonderful way to add extra flavor when you’re cooking. Drizzle them over pasta, use them in homemade salad dressings, or add them to stir-fry — whatever you use them for, the results are guaranteed to be fantastic. Best of all, they’re easy to make at home. Here’s how:
Start by gathering about 2 cups of fresh herbs; you can stick to one herb or mix a few for a flavorful blend. Parsley, basil, thyme, oregano, and rosemary all work well.
Then heat 3 cups of oil (we like using a blend of equal parts olive oil and canola oil) until warmed but not boiling. Pour the warmed oil into the jar and cover it with a clean kitchen towel.
