A drip, a drizzle, a dunk… you will love this simple trick to making your own flavorful garlic oil. This is your one way ticket to becoming more gourmet than you were yesterday.
- 24 ounces grapeseed oil
- 1 small bulb garlic
Pour grapeseed oil into a medium saucepan. Peel garlic and cut cloves in half or you can just smash each garlic clove with a large knife until it bursts open and then peel & place in oil. Place garlic cloves in grapeseed oil.
Heat oil over medium-low heat until it is hot. You don’t want the oil to come to a boil. The garlic cloves should not fry or the oil will become bitter. Turn off heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
Pour oil back into original bottle or store in a pretty glass bottle. You can repurpose used garlic cloves in a recipe or store them in your bottle of oil.
Garlic oil is perfect for cooking, dipping French baguettes in, and can be combined with balsamic vinegar or amazing salad dressing.
