QC: Labeled Herb Bottles
- Designer Kathleen Paneitz created
these lovely herb containers using two
old glass bottles she found at the flea
market. She cut fresh herbs from her
garden and used rub-ons to label the
bottles. Use the bottles as decoration,
to store herbs or to make flavored oils.
Here’s a quick flavored oil recipe that’s perfect for gift-giving, dipping bread as a delicious appetizer or drizzling over pasta and salads.
- 1. In a saucepan, combine the garlic and
about 1/2 cup oil. Place over medium heat until lightly browned. Remove from heat and allow oil to cool for a few minutes.
- 2. Using a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth, strain garlic and oil.
- 3. Combine oil with remaining oil. Place
basil and peppercorns in a sterilized jar or bottle with a tight fitting lid. Add oil and seal jar. Store in a cool, dark place for a week or two before using.
