TIP OF THE DAY: Flavor Boosters

Don’t save your infused oils only for salads. Use them in marinades, as basting oils and as anointing oils. Drizzle them on cooked fish, poultry, meats and vegetables, including potatoes. It’s fun to have a variety of flavored oils to work with—garlic, basil, rosemary, wasabi, lemon and jalapeño oils, for example. Since oils begin to lose their freshness six months after the bottle is first opened, the more often you use them and the more frequently you replace them, the more lively they’ll be. One of our favorite companies, Boyajian, sells small bottles of flavored olive oil that are a better way to buy flavored oils if you don’t use large quantities.

  • Read our review of Boyajian infused olive oils, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.
  • Prefer grapeseed oil? Salute Santé flavored grapeseed oils are another Top Pick Of The Week. Grapeseed oil is extremely heart-healthy, like olive oil, with a very high smoke point.
  • Heart-healthy flavored Olivado avocado oils also made our Top Pick Of The Week honor roll. Avocodo oil ranks as extremely heart-healthy as well, with the highest smoke point of all.
