Home-Made Basil-Infused EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)

Home-Made Basil Oil

 

This may well be the easiest recipe ever.

Grab some good quality EVOO, a generous handful of fresh basil, and there’s your green-hued bottle of goodness ready for you.

To be  just a tad more specific:

In a large pot, bring 500 ml (1 pint, 2 cups) of EVOO and 1 cup of loosely packed basil leaves to a simmer. Immediately turn the heat off and allow to cool in the pot for 30 minutes.

Process the oil and leaves in a blender then strain the precious and viscous liquid through a sieve.

Using a funnel, pour the strained, basil-infused oil into a glass bottle you have previously washed and dried.

I chose to use an old American whiskey bottle with a cork lid we had saved.

A bottle with an attitude, some would say!

This powerfully scented concoction will be very useful as a salad dressing mixed with lemon juice and salt, or simply drizzled on top of your favorite pasta or bruschetta.

Ode to Simplicity!

    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.
    If you know of any please share. Thanks! I saw similar blog here: Backlink Portfolio
