Olive Oil Infusions

Flavoured Olive Oils are a favourite here in Andalucia.....
Add extra bite to your salads and pizzas by adding a drizzle of homemade 'picante' oil. So easy to make and the longer you keep it the hotter it gets...

You will need:

1 bottle extra virgin olive oil
2-3 chilli dried peppers
4-5 garlic cloves
1 sprig rosemary
2-3 sprigs thyme
handfull black peppercorns

How to prepare:

1. Peel the garlic.
2. Add the garlic, chilli, peppercorns, thyme and rosemary to the olive oil.
3. Leave to infuse for at least one week - the longer you leave it, the more intense the flavour.
