Wonderful Homemade basil oil

Making your own infused oils is an effortless thing to do. It is also highly satisfying and fun.

This wonderful homemade basil oil recipe is a fabulous one. Make it when you have a glut of fresh basil or when the warmer months are ending, and you can use up the remaining basil in your garden.

This homemade basil oil is fabulous as a dressing for a tomato salad. It is fantastic and will take a salad to another level. It is also delicious with pasta or grain salads as well as couscous. We often enjoy it as a marinade for chicken or fish and then finish with a few drops more after the cooking. Try it as part of your antipasto and dip torn pieces of bread into it. A few drops in your warm pumpkin soup or tomato soup is also delightful.

You can store any unused oil in the fridge for 5-7 days.

 

It is a pleasure to share the recipe with you here.

With love & wishing you happy days always,
