Spice Up Your Life

Nice, easy one today! A quick and delicious way to perk up your plain and ordinary cooking oil in to something delicious, and it only takes a minute!
I chopped a red chilli in half lengthwise, picked a couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary, but you could use thyme if you prefer, and grabbed a small handful of peppercorns.
Next, I tipped about 50ml of oil out of my bottle to make enough room for the herbs, chilli and peppercorns to go in .
Next job is to pop them in, and that's it ...all done! Told you it was easy.
I love to use extra virgin olive oil as its flavour is really enhanced by the additions. The flavoured oil is delicious with pasta, chicken and as a dressing for salad. Would love to hear your ideas of how to use it too.
