Basil Infused Oil

I was in Tesco the other day and they had some free oil tasters to try. I’m worryingly addicted to basil, and the basil oil taster was so nice I decided to try and make my own.

I do like blending, so I figured just blending basil with oil would work pretty well: it really didnt. It smelled and tasted mostly of plant.

After googling around a bit, it turns out the best way to do it is to heat the oil and then pour that oil onto the basil and leave to cool. Turned out great, especially when layered above balsamic vinegar.
