    500ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    16 Sprigs of Thyme

    2 Lemons, sliced


    Pour the oil and sliced lemon into a large jar.

    Crush 12 sprigs of the thyme slightly to release the natural oils before adding to the jar.

    Secure the lid tightly and leave in a cool, dark place for 2 weeks.

    Strain the oil through a piece of muslin cloth over a bowl, discarding the herbs and lemon slices.

    Decant the oil into a bottle.

    Add the additional 4 sprigs of thyme before sealing.

    Keep out of direct sunlight and enjoy within a month.
