Flavoured olive oil

You know how companies sell that super expensive but oh so yummy flavoured olive oils and we pay heavily for them? Well thanks to Wendyl the green goddess I now know how to make flavoured oils too. I made an oregano version as a Christmas gift but you could add whatever herbs you like. It’s so tasty I really must make some for our pantry.

5 black peppercorns

2 strips of lemon peel

1 garlic clove, crushed

1 litre really good quality extra-virgin olive oil

Put the herbs, peppercorns, lemon peel and garlic clove in a sterilised bottle then add the olive oil.
Leave in a dark place for 2 weeks.
Use over pasta, salads or with meats.
