This easy Fresh Herb Infused Rosemary Olive Oil can be made in your kitchen for pennies compared to the store-bought variety. And homemade is always best since you know its freshness. Rosemary-infused olive oil also makes a great gift.
1 C. Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
¼ C. fresh rosemary leaves, removed from the woody stems
Gather the ingredients.
Use a heavy pot that heats evenly. Place the rosemary in the pot and pour the oil over it. Avoid aluminum and non-enameled cast iron.
Heat over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes. You want the oil to warm but not simmer.
Turn off the heat and let the rosemary infuse in the oil for 1 hour.
Strain into a clean, dry glass bottle or jar.
Cover tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
Tip: be sure the rosemary leaves are dry before adding them to the pot.
