Easy basil oil

Posted in Garden Diary by Jane Griffiths on the June 1st, 2014

Cold weather looks like it is on the way. Before frost hits your herbs,such as basil, harvest the leaves and pack them into bottles and add olive oil. Shake to remove air bubbles and make sure the top of the herbs are covered with oil otherwise they can go mouldy. Store in dark cupboard and enjoy basil leaves and basil flavoured oil in mid winter. (Top it up after using)
Here I have used liquorice flavoured basil. Fantastic in Asian noodle dishes.
