Basil, oil, condiment, lemon, peppercorn
This condiment got me hooked on making even more condiments, just because it’s so easy to make and it tastes good with (almost) everything you drizzle it on.

P.S. Time provided doesn't include dripping time.

  • Step 1

    Sterilize 16-ounce jar and lid by immersing it in boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Drain & dry on a rack before using.

  • Step 2

    Puree basil and oil in the blender until smooth. Pour the mixture into the saucepan over medium low heat, and let it simmer for 1-2 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Let the oil cool to warm to the touch, and pour it through a fine-mesh sieve; tap the excess if necessary (do not press). Layer 3 coffee filters on top of each other and put them over sterilized 16-ounce jar; pour the oil into the layered filters and let it drip through. This process might take awhile (I let it dripped overnight).

  • Step 4

    Then, add lemon & peppercorn. Keep this in a cool & dark place. Drizzle the oil over salad, pasta, soup etc. Enjoy the oil up to 1 month.
