New Father's Day Gift Idea - Homemade Flavored Oils

edible gift infused oils

Finding the perfect gift can become a real guessing game. Some people become overwhelmed with doubt, unsure whether the gift they choose will be appropriate and appreciated. Yet one thing that is always sure to please is a present made with a personal touch, chock-full of love. For the modern day foodie, the go-to DIY gift is, naturally, a gourmet treat.

And there is no better place to start than with homemade flavored olive oil, also known as infused oil. It is a quick yet sophisticated option to be
given out at various holidays and occasions: At dinner parties or birthdays, as housewarming gifts, or “just thinking of you.” You will be giving more than a fantastic kitchen staple that can be used for salads, sauces, garnishes and more; it will be a gift of your time, thought, and little bit of yourself too.

Anything goes really, just follow the basic guide in one of these recipes and use your favorite flavors.  To get you started try:

Basil and Garlic Oil
