Did you know that it's actually not very hard to make your own infused olive oils? I am a die hard Italian flat bread fan, but I can't ever eat it without a good olive oil dip.
Of course, those things get really expensive, and since I'm so addicted to it, I started looking into recipes for making infused olive oil at home. It's surprisingly simple.
All you do is to choose your herbs and spices (there are a lot of great combinations, so be sure to experiment!) dry them, and then place them in your olive oil bottle. Make sure that you don't overdo it, especially with the stronger herbs, or else you'll just get "rosemary oil" or "sage oil" like I did the first few times!
Next, put warmed olive oil into the bottles on top of the herbs. Seal the bottles, and place them in a dark area for a few weeks. Then, all you have to do is to strain out the herbs and spices, and you're golden -- you have your own gourmet olive oil to accompany all those wonderful Italian flat breads.
