It's surprisingly quick and easy to make infused oils that create a flavorful foundation for dressings, marinades and condiments. Choose almost any kind of herb, such as rosemary, thyme, basil, tarragon, savory, oregano, cilantro, marjoram, mint, chive and dill. Experiment with exotic spices like cardamom, star anise, juniper, coriander seeds, cumin, cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon. Just plan ahead to let oil steep for 2 weeks and you'll never need to buy salad dressing again! Preparation: 10 minutes.
