How to Make Garlic Infused Olive Oil With a Hint of Rosemary

 

IMG_4963How to make garlic infused olive oil is both quick and easy. As I have said before, garlic is my go to spice in the kitchen. I love the flavor and garlic infused olive oil is no different. It is very simple to make and since my second favorite spice is rosemary I decided to add a few sprigs to the oil as well. The rosemary is completely optional, everyone have their own taste so you can adjust to what is right for you.

Here is how I made it.

I started with a whole head of garlic. If you like a milder flavor use less garlic.

I pealed the skin off the garlic, a nice trick I learned was to apply pressure with the flat end of your knife on to the garlic rib until you hear a light crack, and the skin will come right off.

After peeling the garlic, I cut each rib in half just to open it up.

I measured out a cup of olive oil and put everything in a pot along with 3 sprigs of rosemary and a teaspoon of salt. Not all olive oil is equal, here is a video on how to pick out real olive oil. I let it go on low heat until bubbles started to appear, then I took it off the heat.
