A great food gift! 🙂

This Summer, I had a big rosemary plant & wanted to keep a part of it in a lovely home-made rosemary oil! It is easy peasy to make & you will love this fragrant easy to make fresh rosemary oil! This is how I made it! Check it out! It will make a great food gift! 😉

Recipe: I had 1 full bottle of 250 ml & a bit leftover

4 to 5 large sprigs of fresh rosemary, cleaned, bigger stalks removed

350 ml of a good fruity extra virgin olive oil

a clean pot with fitted lid

a funnel to help you

Method:

1. First, sterilize your pot with fitted lid, one circle into your dishwasher or boil your pot & lid for 10 minutes. Drain off the water but not touch the interior of the pot & lid.

2. Crush some rosemary leaves, for added flavour & tear a few of them. Add all of your rosemary, to your pot bigger pot.  Now, pour your fruity evoo, with help of a funnel, all over it into the pot until nearly full. You just need some place to screw the lid. Screw the lid back on, really tight. Now, shake the pot up & down a few times to let it all mingle. Place into a dark dry cupboard & leave it there until it is to your liking! I shaked my pot every day & few times up & down. My rosemary oil was ready after 5 weeks. Pour it, with the use of funnels,  into a fitted clean bottle or smaller bottles. You can add the smaller rosemary leaves to the bottle if you want to.  Use it when you want to use yummy rosemary. The uses are endless! Enjoy! 🙂

Tips: If you want to make rosemary scented sweet potato fries, you do it like this: Place your peeled sweet potato fries in 1 layer in your non-stick oven dish. Add some sea salt & freshly ground black pepper. Add about 2 to 3 tablespoons of your fruity rosemary oil & mingle all well with clean hands. Roast for about 25 to 30 minutes in a preheated oven on 200°C & turn the fries over in half of the roasting time. You will love them!

  1. love it when folks preserve summer’s bounty 🙂

    Ordered a stash of vanilla beans and they just arrived. Will try the sherry vanilla you posted a while back. Am excited!

  2. A beautiful, creative way to use up those herbs in the garden! Rosemary is my favourite herb, and I know how great flavoured oils can taste! yum! Wouldn’t this make a great homemade gift, too!

  3. Lovely, I love rosemary and love making herb oils, this is going in my mind for Christmas gifts! X

  4. This would make a lovely gift. My rosemary plant just died and you’ve reminded me to go and buy another one – I just can’t stand having to buy rosemary in the stores when it’s so easy to grow xx

  5. Sophie! What a smart woman. Do you still have some rosemary left? May I suggest some Ligurian Pesto? It’s just olive oil, the herb, garlic and some salt. Whizz it up it the food processor, store in clean jars in the freezer. It works wonders on a pizza.

    Have a superb week!

  6. tempting to try your version,
    btw i was so lucky that my friends gave me a leftover pure thyme and rosemarry extracs from several chemical extraction, she using it for her thesis…

  7. What a thoughtful gift – and the ribbon is absolutely adorable. What an easy recipe! I would love to grow some rosemary, what does yours look like? I would love to use the rosemary oil in mashed potatoes or any potato dish…mmmmM!

  8. What a great idea! I love the flavor of rosemary – it’s so great that you made your own infused oil!

  9. I’m so happy that you posted this. I have a giant rosemary bush and I love to make tea from it but hadn’t thought about oil. Great idea for Christmas Sophie!

    1. I took 3 weeks of blogging for a break, dear Rhonda & then I don’t blog at all! I am truly disconnected then. I will be back sooner then later,… 🙂 x

  10. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say fantastic blog!
