Christmas is a little over a week away and you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping. The malls are packed but you want to get the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. Instead of stressing out, why not make a gift yourself?
Your family and friends will truly appreciate a gift that is home maid and came from the heart and an easy and great gift to make is infused olive oils. You can infuse olive oil with just about anything and the whole process is quick and easy.
Next time you’re at the grocery store pick up a large container of olive oil plus your favorite ingredients. You can try rosemary, garlic, peppers, or citrus, whatever flavors you like. Place you olive oil on the stove and add your chosen ingredient and bring it to a boil. If you’re infusing your olive oil with rosemary, make sure to remove the rosemary after it boils because the oil will become murky if the rosemary is left in there too long. Your other ingredients, like garlic or peppers, can be left in the oil for an added color.
After your oil has cooled, store them in cute mason jars that seal closed and tie a cute bow around them. Everyone on your list will love these infused oils that are great to cook with or enjoy with a piece of break and the best part is it was made from the heart!
