Shallot Infused Oil

Ready In

"I use this oil to add shallot/onion flavor to dishes without it upsetting my stomach. Shallot/Onion is a digestive disruptor for many people when eaten in raw or cooked form, but when you infuse it in the oil it will not upset the digestive system. I have listed avocado oil for this recipe but you can use other oils depending on what you will use it for. For example, if you want to use this in salads, olive oil would be best. If you want to use it to pan fry, then the avocado oil would be best as it works best at high heat."

I was looking forward to this infused shallot oil, it was as good as I thought it would be. I will be checking around for some pretty bottles for storage meanwhile my jar is working just fine. A keeper!
