I love flavoured oils but they can be so expensive so these 3 recipes from super food ideas I think will come in very handy. Each recipe makes 1/3 cup and I have put the quantities and times as if making all 3.

Pat, this was lovely! I chose the fresh herb oil to make, and we dipped some crusty bread, which was perfect! I do think that I may use a little less rosemary next time, as that seemed to be the predominant flavor. I also may add a touch of garlic (powder or a little minced), next time, as I love garlic! Thanks for sharing some great oil recipes! :D

We've been having a terrible heat wave and I've not been cooking much. I made the fresh herb version of this oil to accompany our simple meal of bread, cheese, prosciutto, sliced veggies, a glass of wine - such a nice variation on plain olive oil!

I made the tangy citrus oil, and it was so good! I think there's a good balance of flavour here. This is something I used with hummus and pita, and it worked really well in that combination.
