Use this infused oil to prepare Marcia Kiesel's Duck Breasts and Orzo Salad with Herb-Infused Olive Oil.

  1. 1/2 packed cup parsley leaves
  2. 1/2 packed cup basil leaves
  3. 1/4 cup chopped chives
  4. 2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
  5. 4 large thyme sprigs
  6. 2 rosemary sprigs
  1. In a food processor, combine the parsley, basil, chives and 1/2 cup of the olive oil and process to a loose paste. Let stand for 1 hour. Pour the oil through a fine sieve into a tall, narrow jar, stopping when you reach the sediment at the bottom. Add the remaining 1 1/2 cups of olive oil. Submerge the thyme and rosemary sprigs in the oil. Cover and let stand for 3 to 4 weeks in a cool, dark place.
  2. Funnel the oil into a glass bottle, discarding the herb sprigs. Store in a cool, dark place for up to 2 months.
