Gourmet Gift - Fancy Cooking Oil
Here is a very easy and inexpensive gift idea that looks and tastes equally as impressive. Buy some dark colored oil bottles (you may even be able to find some at your dollar store - the dark glass helps the oil stay fresh longer). Make sure to wash them out carefully before using them. Choose the flavor you would like to infuse your oil with garlic and sun-dried tomatoes.
Slice up 5-7 cloves of garlic and sun-dried tomatoes, depending on how 'flavorful' you want it. Put your garlic and tomatoes in the oil bottle and add olive oil to the bottle. You can also use fresh herbs like tarragon or rosemary (you can buy larger bulk-sized bottles at your grocery store). Seal and refrigerate until you are ready to wrap and a a gourmet gift!

Make sure and always refrigerate home made flavoured oils, as putting fresh garlic, chillis etc in the oil, can create a toxin which in turn can create botchulism which in turn can cause food poisoning. Still worth making though as they taste so good. Pity really as they look so pretty.
