  • 1 cup olive oil extra virgin
  • Peel from 1 or 2 lemons


  • Scrub your lemons quite thoroughly and peel 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. Once cooled, remove the peel and pour the flavoured oil in a bottle or jar.
  • Store in a cool, dark place to allow the flavours to develop.
