"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Personal Notes:
This rosemary-infused oil is great for stirring into soup, for drizzling on pasta and vegetables, and for dipping with good Italian bread. It can be made on the stovetop, but is hard to keep the oil in a small saucepan from getting too hot too fast. The slow cooker is much more versatile and the finished infusion is a pale green and your kitchen will smell like Provence.
