  • 1 cup, extra virgin olive oil
  • Peel from 1 or 2 lemons (Use Meyer Lemons if available)



Step 1

Scrub your lemons quite thoroughly before peeling them.
Peel your lemons avoiding any of the white pith.
Place the lemon peel with the olive oil in a sauce pan and cook over a very low heat for 10-15 mins. (make sure the mixture does not boil. We want to the flavours to infuse nice and slowly)
Remove from the heat and allow the olive oil to cool down completely.
Remove the peel and pour the oil in a glass bottle or jar.
Store in a cool, dark place to allow the flavours to develop.
