ORANGE OIL (about 1 cup)
the grated zest of 3 oranges (about ¼ cup)
1 cup mild olive, walnut, peanut or other mild oil
- Combine the orange zest and oil in a sterilized 8 to 10 ounce jar and let steep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Strain the oil through a dampened paper coffee filter (paper towels can taste of chemicals). The oil can be kept, covered and refrigerated, for up to 1 week, no longer.
