My creation for today: garlic, lemon, thyme and chili flakes infused in oil. Easy, beautiful and a delicious addition to many dishes. I’d received a bottle of infused oil for Christmas (thanks, Mirs) and following the directions on the tag I put it in the fridge. It got
forgotten lost amongst the condiment bottles but when I discovered it again I started drizzling it into salads and over vegetables. I dipped bread in it and put a little into a warm bowl of cannellini beans.
But then it was gone and I had a pretty, little bottle. An empty, pretty, little bottle.
I read a few recipes online and thought it would be a simple project for Day 6 of 30 Days of Creativity. I put two long curls of lemon peel with the white pith removed, two cloves of garlic, a few stems of fresh thyme and a pinch of red pepper flakes into the bottle. I warmed plain canola oil in a glass measure in the microwave and poured it over the contents of the bottle. Once it was cooled down, Rem closed the lid and put it in the fridge. That’s it! It needs to stay in the fridge and best to use within 3 weeks to avoid any risk of nasty bacteria.
It was so easy I still had creative energy to spare, so I made a tag for the bottle.
I appreciate the visit, thanks for stopping by!
