Recipe by Adrienne in Reister

Here's a little recipe for creating garlic olive oil. You should only make a little at a time because you don't want your oil to spoil. Once you make it -- bottle it up and put it in the fridge and use it during the week for cooking. My only note is, add a little fresh basil or thyme leaves for an even more robust taste experience. Enjoy!!


  1. In a small saucepan, bring the garlic and oil to a boil, then turn the heat to low, and cook for 5 minutes, until the garlic is lightly browned.
  2. Turn off the heat and set aside. The garlic will continue to cook.
  3. Remove the garlic cloves from the oil and slice them.
  4. Place them in a bowl and pour the oil over them.
  5. Bottle it up and put it in the fridge. Use it for cooking during the next week.
