Fresh Herbs Preserved In Olive Oil

Over at Nourished Kitchen, there has been a "preserve the bounty" challenge. Week #2's challenge was to preserve using oils and fats. I found one thing i've had an abundance of is rosemary, and a little less of basil. How delicious would a basil infused olive oil taste on some fresh salad, or tomato-mozzarella slices.  I had a good time making this simple preservation.  

Make sure your herbs are clean and dry, no water on them at all!  Then pack into a small jar,  and cover in olive oil.  Place in fridge, and refill oil each time you take some out, so you are keeping the herbs covered.

Enjoy the fragrance, taste and beauty!
