One of the things that we pride ourselves on the most here at Lucini Italia Co. is our high-quality imported olive oil and flavored olive oil. Flavored olive oil is a terrific way to add a bit of a flavorful kick to your everyday olive oil. If you’ve ever wondered how to make infused olive oil of your own, we’ll be glad to teach you! Here are three of our favorite types of flavored olive oil as well as how to make them (using our own olive oil as a base). And don’t worry – they’re as simple as can be!
Chili Olive Oil
If you’re looking to spice up your olive oil, we recommend trying some chili olive oil. To make it, you’ll just need a few teaspoons of dried, crushed red pepper flakes. Combine these with olive oil into a saucepan and then cook it at 180 degrees Fahrenheit for about five minutes. Let it cool at room temperature for a few hours afterward. After cooling, transfer the oil to a bottle, preferably with the help of a funnel.
Italian Herb Olive Oil
Not only is this Italian herb olive oil blend healthy and flavorful, but it’s also incredibly simple to make. You’ll need a handful of ingredients that include six leaves of basil, two sprigs of oregano, two sprigs of rosemary, and two sprigs of thyme. All you need to do is combine all these ingredients into a bottle and then, with the usage of a funnel, pour about 1.5 cups of olive oil in.
Rosemary-Infused Olive Oil
While the last recipe included rosemary, this is for those who want to go all out with that taste! All you’ll need is three fresh rosemary sprigs and about half of a cup of olive oil. Combine the ingredients in a saucepan and then cook it at a low heat of 180 degrees Fahrenheit for about five minutes. Remove it and let it cool at room temperature. Afterward, transfer the sprigs to a bottle and then add the oil to it.
