Homemade wild garlic oil
Wild garlic is just so tasty, and you can preserve its lovely flavor longer if you make wild garlic oil. You can use the oil for so many different dishes. I love it!
- fresh wild garlic
- cold-pressed rapeseed oil
This is my own take on a regular herb-infused oil, made with wild garlic. I just love making oils like this. It's my favorite way to preserve the many lovely flavors and fragrances of my garden. And wild garlic is such a wonderful ingredient.
The proportions are not that important. Experiment and see what works for you!
Put a few wild garlic leaves and some salt in a bowl and add around 3.5 liquid ounces of oil.
Blend the leaves and oil with a stick blender.
Add some more oil if needed.
If you want your oil clear, you can leave the leaves in the oil for a few days and then pour the oil through a sieve.
Keep the wild garlic oil in a cool and dark space. It lasts for a few months. You could freeze it too though in smaller portions, perhaps as ice cubes.
