      I needed some garlic infused olive oil for a recipe so decided to use your method. It turned out perfect and my house smelled of garlic heaven. I promise to try the complete dipping sauce sometime soon.

      Soooo good. I added a handful of fresh basil. We then put the used garlic on some steaks for grilling. Wonderful. You need to use a good quality olive oil. Delicious!
