Method 3: Slow cooker method

<Back to infused oils page

Pros: Can be left alone unlike the bain-marie method. Quicker than the sun method.

cons: longer than the bain-marie method, but can be made overnight as you sleep!

you will need:

  • A slow cooker with a 'keep warm' setting
  • 3 parts oil – vegetable or sunflower oilis usually the most stable for heating
  • 1 part fresh herb or 1/3 less of dried

Place herb and oil in slow cooker, put on 'keep warm' and leave for a couple of hours (or overnight if needed). Repeat with new set of herbs.  

Strain, bottle and label.
