I promise I’m still here! Sorry for the loooong delay in posts (work/moving/life has gotten really busy). How did y’all spend your Labor Day? We spent the last vacay of summer resting and soaking up time at home. When we moved in, I planted a herb garden in a window box overlooking my sink. I have loved using fresh herbs for all sorts of deliciousness this summer. This homemade dipping oil has been a staple around our house. It is a major upgrade from plain old butter.
Recipe for Homemade Dipping Oil*
Yields about a cup of oil
What you need:**
- 1 cup olive oil
- 2 minced garlic cloves
- 2 TB chopped basil
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1 teaspoon chopped parsley
- 1 teaspoon chopped oregano
- 1 teaspoon minced rosemary
- 2 pinches salt
- 1 pinched fresh ground black pepper
What to do:
Mix All ingredient. Shake well before serving.
*This last for about 2 weeks before I think the flavors get too overpowering. Using dried herbs will allow the oil to last longer and are a good option for the colder months.
**I really use whatever herbs I have on hand. I have used sage and thyme before and they were delicious as well!
