Infused Olive Oils can cost a pretty penny, but they’re so easy to prepare, it doesn’t make sense to spend the money.  The flavoring options are limited only by your imagination!

First, the olive oil.  Why do I say, “You get what you pay for,” when it comes to olive oil?  Because you do and there are some confusing practices out there.
