Rosemary and Garlic infused Olive Oil

This recipe is so simple yet so useful and tastes wonderful too.
All you will need is:

1. A good quality virgin olive oil.
2. A clove of garlic
3. A sprig of fresh rosemary

Slightly crush the garlic clove and place in salad dressing jar (any glass jar will do). Brake off and wash a sprig of rosemary and add to the jar. Then pour in the olive oil until the jar is full and both the rosemary and garlic have been submerged in oil. Stick in the fridge and leave for 3-4 days. In this time the oil will become infused with the aromatic flavoures of the rosemary and the garlic. You can add more or less depending on how strong a flavour you like. You could also add any other herbs of your choice such as thyme or pepper.

This delicious oil can then be drizzled over salads, used as a marinade or put on toast instead of butter or margarine.
