Sous Vide 101: Easy Meyer Lemon and Thyme Infused Olive Oil

Anova Culinary

Infusing your own oils will not only save you money but it’s a great way to add your own twist to your culinary creations. Flavored oils also make great gifts during the holiday season! I started with a simple Meyer Lemon Thyme infusion both for its versatility and punch of flavor. Combine with a bit of vinegar and you have a delicious vinaigrette, or drizzle a little over cooked steak, seafood or vegetables to brighten the dish. Once strained, this recipe yields about 2 1/4 cups of oil.
