Rosemary Infused Olive Oil

For food safety, Rosemary Infused Olive Oil should be stored in the refrigerator at all times. To serve, drizzle oil in a shallow serving dish; add a few fresh rosemary leaves, and sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Use for dipping slices bread.

Yield: about 1 cup oil

Rinse rosemary and let it dry completely. Combine oil and rosemary in a small heavy pan. Warm over low heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Do not fry.) Remove from heat, and cool to room temperature.
