Herb oil

Herb oil can be made from any fresh green herbs with a distinct aroma. You could, for instance, make chive, rocket, or basil oil. You could, of course, also use mixed green herbs. The oils add a lot of flavour to dishes and their bright green colour add a decorative touch. Here is a recipe that uses basil, parsley, and tarragon.

Recipe makes 500 milliliters.
