How to Make Herb Oils

Parsley Oil:

Add 4 to 6 Tablespoons (100ml) of olive oil and a bunch of roughly chopped parsley to a blender and blend till smooth. Then press this mixture through a fine sieve till you have collected the parsley oil.

 

Basil Oil:

There are two options here. You can blanch the basil leaves first or not! 

1.  Blanch a handful of basil leaves in a pan of salted boiling water for one minute, then drain and place the leaves into iced water (this maintains the colour).

With a tea towel squeeze out the excess water from the basil. Place the basil leaves into a blender with 4 to 6 Tbsp olive oil and blend till smooth. Then press this mixture through a fine sieve till you have collected the basil oil. 

 

2.  Place a handful of basil, 4 - 6 Tbsp of oil and seasoning into a blender and blend until smooth.
