This flavored oil is easy to make and adds an individual touch. Use this to baste vegetables and meatwhen grilling or broiling.


  1. Spoon 2 tbls. paprika into a clean jar or bottle. Pour in 2 cups olive oil and seal the bottle. Leave in a cool, dark place, shaking the bottle occasionally, for 1 week.
  2. Line a funnel with a double layer of cheesecloth and then strain the oil into another bottle. Use the oil to baste vegetables and meats when cooking. Enjoy!

Oh, my, this is amazing!!
Sharon, do you EVER have a recipe that isn't awesome? Didn't think so..I haven't found one yet.
This is going to be a staple for BBQ season--potatoes, veggies, salad dressings, meat--you name it! WOW!! Made for French Forum's Spice of the Month-Paprika.
UPDATE: This summer, I've used this oil with potatoes, corn on the cob, grilled chicken and hamburgers. All were top drawer because of the extra flavor. THX, Sharon. You rock!

Awesome! Still have another 6 days to go but it already has a lot of flavor. And I like the color too,it reminds me of chili oil.It's so pretty!
