Bay Oil

Bay is one of my favourite herbs, and being lucky enough to have a couple of bay trees in the garden, I am never short of fresh leaves. But sometimes cooking with leaves is not so convenient, and I’ll occasionally turn to oil infused with bay as an alternative.

Bay oils are not cheap, but they are very useful and their aroma absolutely divine. Someone suggested to me, ‘you could always make you own’, and I figured that it might just be worth a try.
