Herb-Infused Oil

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 2 cups


Note: The secret to this oil is to never let the oil get higher than 100 degrees F, otherwise the oil and flavorings will scorch.


  • 2 cups of a good-quality extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup fresh basil, chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh thyme, chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic or 56 fresh garlic cloves minced fine
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon whole fennel seeds


  1. Add the oil to a small sauce pan and heat to 100 degrees F using a candy thermometer or a probe thermometer. Once at 100 degrees, add all of the remaining ingredients. Maintain 100 degrees for ten minutes and then remove from heat.
  2. Once cool, store refrigerated for up to two weeks.
