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.
