Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash Basil.
  2. Let basil dry thoroughly and then pat it with kitchen paper to dry it more (very important).
  3. Put basil in bottles with a GOOD seal (I use german beer bottles with a porcelain, rubber and metal top) and cover with oil.
  4. Leave for at least 2 weeks.
  5. Use to flavour pasta, salads, potatoes, etc.
