Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 bunch basil, leaves picked
250ml grapeseed oil

Method

  1. Warm the basil and oil in a small saucepan over low heat to 80°C, using a thermometer to check the temperature. Transfer the mixture to a high-speed blender and blitz for 3 minutes. Pass the mixture through a sieve lined with three layers of muslin (cheesecloth) into a bowl. Don’t press on the solids as even a tiny speck of leaf in the oil will turn it brown. Once strained, season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
