Need a Last Minute Gift Idea? – Garlic-and-Herb-Infused Olive Oil



If you need a quick and easy gift idea for someone on your list with more of a savory than sweet pallet, we have just the thing! Garlic-and-Herb-Infused Olive Oil makes for a beautiful, thoughtful and inexpensive gift, not to mention… It’s delicious!

Here is everything you need to put together your gift!




3 cups extra-virgin olive oil

5 garlic cloves, smashed

3 fresh thyme sprigs

3 fresh rosemary sprigs

3 fresh sage sprigs

2 bay leaves

1 teaspoon fennel seeds

1 teaspoon coriander seeds

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper



Let’s Make the Dressing!


1. Thoroughly wash and dry the herbs before adding to the oil to prevent bacterial growth

2. Heat the first 9 ingredients in a large, deep skillet until the oil warms and the garlic and herbs begin to sizzle, about 5 minutes

3. Remove from heat and cool completely, about 4 hours

4. Pour the oil through a cheesecloth-lined strainer into a bowl, discard the solids. Transfer the infused oil into small bottles and store in the refrigerator up to 1 month.
