Step 1

Heat the oil until it's warm and just beginning to simmer. Do not bring it to a boil. Turn off the heat.Add the herbs and lemon zest. Allow the herbs and zest to steep covered for at least 10 minutes.

Step 2

If desired, use right away. For a more intense lemon flavor, add the oil, zest and herbs to a glass container and steep for at least 3 hours (or up to 3 days) in the fridge. The oil will harden in the fridge, so move it to room temperature about 30 minutes before using.

Step 3

Refrigerate oil: The infused oil will last for up to 3 days if kept refrigerated.Freeze oil: Leftover oil can be preserved longer if frozen within 2-3 days.  For easy freezing, try pouring the oil into a portioned silicone mold (such as an ice cube tray), and then moving the frozen oil cubes to a freezer bag.  Use frozen oil within 3 months for the best flavor. If frozen, oil should be used within two days of thawing.
