I love to preserve my garden bounty as much as I love to garden and write! Whether it’s putting the good things in the freezer, on the can shelves or drying for the pantry, I relish in the accomplishment!
I thought I’d share my yummy Garlic-Thyme Infused Olive oil recipe with you today…
Pint mason/canning jar
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4-6 fresh cloves garlic to mince
1/2 cup thyme leaves
1 Tbsp. sea salt
Double ingredients except salt if you want to do a quart jar.
2. Take your fresh picked thyme and start striping the leaves into the oil until you have about 1/2 cup worth
3. Mince garlic into oil. Add salt
4. Stir all ingredients until well blended. Leave in a cupboard out of direct sunlight for about a week before you use it. This will allow the flavors to blend.
Now that you have your yummy oil ready, here are some idea’s on how to use it!
*Brush on bread before you broil or toast it for Brushetta
*Brush on any veggie that you want to grill… this is our favorite for zucchini and yellow squash.
*Toss into pasta instead of sauce
… these are just a couple of my personal faves… do you have any idea’s? If you do, please leave a comment here and share… be sure to come on over to my Facebook page and give it a like… we have lots of fun there!
