How to flavour olive oil using fresh herbs


  • 2 cups extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 1 sprig fresh oregano
  • 2 fresh bay leaves
  • 1 clove garlic – peeled and crushed


Mix together all or a selection of the above ingredients to achieve a delicious infused olive oil. Experiment with amounts as they will vary according to taste.

Mix a day prior to use, to give the flavours some time to infuse. Then store in the fridge, covered with cling-film, bringing the mixture out about an hour before use so that it will return to room temperature. This can be stored in the fridge for no longer than 1 week.
