Dualit Product Recipe:

Chive Oil

Serves 800mls Prep Time 0 mins Prep Time 0 mins

Make flavoured oils in the summer months as a great way to capture the essence of fresh herbs like chives; your Dualit food processor will tease out the last drop of their sweet, onion-like flavour.You can taste the difference when you use freshly grown herbs and the small Dualit bowl and blade will chop them to perfection (remove the stalks first). Infused oils also make a great gift.

  • 90g chives
  • 4 tsp crystal (sea) salt
  • 700ml extra virgin olive oil
  1. In the large bowl fitted with its chopping blade, mince the chives.
  2. Add the salt and continue to pulse once or twice.
  3. With the motor running, add the oil in a thin steady stream, cupping your hand over the feeder tube to prevent the oil splashing upwards.
  4. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a large jug, rubbing well, to extract all the oil.
  5. Pour through a funnel into a suitable glass bottle.
  6. Seal with a cork (corks from sherry bottles are excellent for this) and store in a cool dark place, but not in the fridge.
  7. Drizzle Chive Oil over burgers, grilled fish and barbecued meat, or use it to pan fry chicken breasts. Use it to make salad dressing, a flavouring for mayonnaise, or as a dip for crusty bread.
