Flavored Oils

Here is something I love to do with my abundant summer herbs.  I save (or you can purchase) decorative bottles, fill them with fresh herb combinations and extra virgin olive oil.  By the time the holidays roll around you have delicious seasoned oils to give as gifts.  Attach some raffia and a cardboard tag and you have a wonderful gift from your garden.

Here are some ideas for seasonings –

Rosemary, Thyme, Winter Savory (some of the more hardy herb varieties).

Pepper corns (plain or colorful), garlic cloves, juniper berries

Bay leaves, or any dried herb works well also.
