Basil is plentiful this time of year, and I have an abundance of it in my garden and my farm share. I love to make oodles of pesto to store in the freezer and enjoy throughout the winter.
A recent trip to The Arlington restaurant on Long Beach Island, New Jersey inspired me to branch out a bit. They serve their flatbread with an amazing basil oil drizzled on top, and after one bite I knew I wanted to recreate this oil at home. This basil oil can also be served as a flavorful sauce over pasta, fish, meat, grilled vegetables, or salad.
Basil Oil Price Breakdown
This oil costs $3.01 to make and it yields about 2 cups. Basil oil is a delicious flavoring for many different meals, and it also makes a great gift.
