Infused Herb Oil it safe

Posted by david1948 5b Wa (My Page) on

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 ??
