Garlic flavored oil that's a nice addition to many dishes. It will keep in the refrigerator for 2 weeks. From Rozanne Gold, a favorite cookbook author. Cook time includes steeping/cooling time.


  1. Gently heat garlic and oil in a small saucepan for 5 minutes, until bubbles form on top; turn heat off and add bay leaves and peppercorns.
  2. Steep and cool; can be kept, refrigerated, for 2 weeks.

I tried making this and putting it in inexpensive bottles for holiday gifts. It went over very well.

It works and tastes good. I like a lot of garlic flavor so I heated it for longer and used a cracker to test it out along the way. After about 15 min it was nice and garlic-y.

This doesn't take very much effort. I'm not sure how to store olive oil in the fridge because it will solidify; seems ok in a cool, dark cabinet. This is really great to have on hand.
