My son wanted me to make basil olive oil. Huh. I'd never had it. But it just so happened that suzanne1943 had brought some fresh from her garden! I wrapped it up in a paper sack and let it dry about a month before picking the leaves off and crumbling them into the food processor where I turned it into powder, and placed it in the round-bottomed jar before filling it with EVOO.

The smaller bottle is what's left of the chili oil.

That is so cool! I just bought a bottle of roasted garlic olive oil because I was afraid of making my own. Any suggestions for ratio of oil to spice?

As I am predisposed to extremeism, I usually put as much as I can, and am rarely disappointed at the results.

Were I you, I would totally first roast the garlic - yummy!
