I’m trying to make some spicy vodka by infusing it with a few peppers from our garden and peppercorns. I had one bigger red pepper (we can’t remember the variety) to use and some tiny little thai peppers that pack quite a spicy punch. I don’t think I used enough peppers though. This time I used a bottle with a filter built in to the top so the straining should be easy. Can’t wait for some super spicy bloody marys! I make them spicy to begin with :)

Making garden herb infused olive oil spread

Sometimes we like to make little personal pizzas on top of flatbread for dinner. Instead of pizza sauce, we tend to use olive oil or hummus. 

Our garden is somewhat sad this year due to the crazy drought we’ve been having but at least the herbs are doing well.  I picked some thyme, oregano, garlic chives and rosemary from the garden to start with:

I then stripped the thyme, oregano, and rosemary leaves from their stems and sliced up the chives and put them in my mortar:

I proceeded to use the pestle to crush up the herbs:

and then mixed in olive oil:

We spread this concoction on our flatbread pizzas and we could definitely taste the herbs after the pizzas finished cooking. Yum!
