Basil Olive Oil

6-8 large leaves Basil
Virgin Olive Oil (Extra Virgin Olive Oil is too strong and will over power the basil taste)

Roll leaves into a tube shape, slightly pinch them (this will bruise them and release the basil oil) and shove them one at a time into the bottom of the bottle.
Place funnel on bottle opening, and pour olive oil into bottle until it is full.
Cap tightly, let it sit in a cool, dark place for 1-2 weeks before using it. The oil will slowly infuse over the weeks.
Infused olive oil keeps for about a month especially if refrigerated after opening it.
If ingredients show signs of spoilage discard immediately.
I would love to meet you on Facebook or on Twitter
