Take 3 ingredients: Garlic and Rosemary Oil

This is one of those gourmet oils which costs a fortune in the shops, yet is so easy to make for yourself.  Any extra can be bottled, decorated with a ribbon and given away as gifts.


250ml of good quality olive oil

2 large cloves of garlic

4 sprigs of rosemary


  1. Decant the oil into a clean and sterilised glass jar or bottle. 
  2. Roughly chop or mince the garlic and add to the oil.
  3. Add the rosemary springs to the oil and garlic, then tightly close the lid.
  4. Leave the jar or bottle of oil in a cool, dark place for no more than 10 days.  Give the container a good shake at least every other day, to ensure the herb favours blend in with the oil.
  5. After a few days (remember, no more than 10), strain the oil into a clean, sterilised glass bottle. Discard the garlic and rosemary.

Use the oil for recipes that call for olive oil.  Especially good with pork and ham dishes.
