Added to Recipes on Wed 10/12/2011


1 lemon

Cold-pressed olive oil



Grate the outside of the lemon over a bowl.


Fill a small glass bottle halfway with the grated lemon zest. Fill the rest of the bottle with olive oil.


Set the bottle on a windowsill or somewhere else that gets a lot of sun. Leave it there for a few days, but shake the bottle a few times per day.


Store lemon oil in an airtight container at room temperature.
