Artisan Infused Olive Oil

Yes, you can make uniquely flavor olive oils in your kitchen.  Simple and elegant!

What you’ll need:

  • Glass bottle with a top
  • Organic extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. dried granulated garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. dried minced onions
  • 1/4 tsp. dried red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. dried black peppercorns
  • 1 bay leaf


  1. Combine all your spices in your bottle
  2. Fill with olive oil, leave at least one-inch headspace for mixing
  3. Label with ingredients
  4. Store in a cool dark place for about 2 weeks
  5. Shake the bottle daily to infuse flavor

Other flavor profiles using all dried herbs:

  • Rosemary and garlic
  • Chilli peppers and garlic (yep I love garlic)
  • oregano, basil, garlic, and dried tomatoes flakes

Now get creative and use the flavored olive oil.  Try it on a specialty pizza you made by drizzling it on after baking, make some dipped oil for bread, or add a splash to any meal before serving.

Important Note: For health reasons only use dried herbs.  There is a possible risk of botulism when using fresh ingredients.
