Today  was a weird day and I felt like making something in the kitchen, I wasn’t sure what exactly and them it came to me. Something I’ve always wanted to do was try making my own infused oils. So that was that I decided on infused oil using thyme, lemon, garlic and pepper as the flavour. This infused oil is perfect for marinades, frying meats, browning veges anything really.
I just tossed hot potatoes with 1 tbsp of this and parsley and it was simply perfection.

This oil has so much flavour and is easy to make .
It’s just a basic recipe you can substitute any of the flavours for other ingredients like:
Chilies, rosemary and other herbs, cardamom pods, fennel or cumin seeds. The possibilities are endless. I would love to see your infused oils or what you use them in.


Thyme and Lemon Infused Oil


1 1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup loosely packed fresh thyme stalk and all
1/2 lemon, just rind/skin
4 garlic cloves, crushed
6 peppercorns.


  1. In small pot combine all ingredients, gently heat on low for 10 minutes. ( If it starts to spit it’s too hot, remove from heat)
  2. Cool and pour into sterilized jar with the thyme, lemon, garlic and peppercorns so the flavours can develop more

Makes: 1 Jar
