Chapter 13. Sage Oil
Things you’ll need:
1 cup fresh sage plant
1/2 cup olive oil
How to make the oil?
Step 1: Place the sage into a freezer bag. Make sure to squeeze out the air, seal the bag and use a rubber mallet to pound the bag to crush the sage.
Step 2: Transfer the crushed sage into a jar and fill it with the olive oil. Put the lid on and place the jar in a warm spot.
Step 3: Leave the jar undisturbed for 48 hours.
Step 4: Strain the oil using a sieve or a piece of fine cheesecloth. Discard the sage leaves and store the oil in a dark glass bottle. If you want to create more potent sage oil, just add a new batch of crushed sage leaves and repeat the process.
Step 5: Make a label and keep the oil in a dark and cool place.
The shelf-life of this sage oil is a year.
