Basil olive oil Directions
- Rinse your basil and remove hard stems. Place all leaves in a colander and blanch them with 1 liter of boiling water. Chill, squeeze with your hands and put them in a blender. Add about 150 ml of olive oil and blend until very smooth.
- To filter the oil I recommend using paper coffee filters, a very thick gauze or a fine cotton cloth. Pour the mixture over the filter and slowly drain it (occasionally stir it gently).
This sounds lovely, I always have a lot of basil in my garden - Jenni
