Infused Herb Oil it safe

david1948(5b Wa)September 3, 2011

I have read of infusing oil with herbs...

Here's the recipe.......

Mix 50/50 vegetable oil and olive oil..the mix is needed to keep the olive oil from thickening in the refer....

Bring the oil to 180 deg F on the stove top...

Add Crushed Rosemary, Crushed Garlic, Crushed Black Pepper to the oil and simmer at 180 for 10 minutes....

Transfer all ingredients to a glass container, when cool, and store in the refer for later use...

Does anyone see a problem using this recipe ??

Has the 180 deg temp properly pasteurized the mix ??

What, if anything else should be done to insure a safe edible oil ??

Yes, strain out the solids after infusing.

Here are links to a couple of discussions about this from last week.
