Ingredients

Preparation

Puree basil in a food processer until smooth.

Combine basil and oil in a small saucepot over medium heat. Using a thermometer, heat oil mixture to 180° F. Remove from heat immediately.

Strain the oil mixture through a mesh strainer, then again through a mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth. Let the basil sit for 1 hour — a layer of water (from the basil) will sink to the bottom. Carefully ladle off the oil from the top, making sure to avoid the water. Transfer oil to a clean container. Refrigerate the Basil Oil up to 1 week.
