Infused Olive Oil

Leave a comment

We bought a pour-top bottle recently, in which to keep olive oil on the kitchen counter. We, like most people, cook daily with olive oil, and it was a cheap, attractive, convenient storage and dispensing solution. I love the look of it. Silly? Probably. But why not?

I then thought how nice it would be to make our own herb infused olive oil to drizzle on crusty bread or over roasted veggies. Luckily I checked online for instructions first. Apparently, if you don’t use preserved or thoroughly dehydrated ingredients, you can end up preparing a lovely media for the growth of botulism. (!)

I then found several methods of preparing SAFE home herbed oil. It’s attractive and tasty, and I love that I made it myself. I’m going to enjoy using my fancy homemade herbed oil, but next time I’ll buy the pre-made. The threat of botulism dampers my enjoyment… buzzkill!

Have you ever regretted a project? What was it?
