Rosemary Infused Oil - Grace Grits and Gardening


We have so much rosemary growing in our garden, I am forever trying to work it into cooking, cleaning and decorating. 

This rosemary infused olive oil is very flavorful, can be used in a variety of recipes and makes a great gift. 

Ingredients
1 cup olive oil
5-6 sprigs rosemary

Heat olive oil and rosemary on the stovetop on medium heat for five minutes. Return to room temperature.

Place a few of the rosemary twigs inside a decorative container and fill with olive oil. This will store in the refrigerator for a month.


Rosemary Snacks...

Popcorn: For an unusual twist on an old standby, drizzle a tablespoon of rosemary infused olive oil over air-popped popcorn. Sprinkle with finely chopped rosemary and sea salt. Yum!

Almonds: Spread 2-3 cups raw almonds on a cookie sheet. Drizzle rosemary infused olive oil over and mix to lightly coat. Sprinkle with sea salt, cayenne, chopped rosemary to taste. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Delicious!



Enjoy!

  1. Really looks easy! I love the two recipes and am anxious to try the popcorn one first! Can you start rosemary by leaving the sprigs in water?

    1. Danni - my next post (in March) is going to be about propagating rosemary. You are reading my mind:)) You actually need to take a cutting and plant it using root stimulator. T.
