The Secret Art of Making Herbal Oils and Vinegars

September 18, 2011, 1:00 PM

Basil-infused olive oil? Rose geranium vinegar? It’s amazing what adding herb-flavored ingredients can do to your culinary creations. If you’ve perused the shelves of specialty shops, the prices might lead you to believe there is a mystery or complicated process to making them. (Shhh. Not so.) On September 18 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Liz Demkin, the skillful tender of the

Maplewood Garden Club Herb Garden, will show you how ridiculously easy it is to make your own flavored oils and vinegars from your favorite herbs. This is a “make ‘n take” workshop; a minimal charge will cover the cost of bottles and ingredients. The Durand-Hedden House will also be open for visitors to peruse the exhibit "The Maplewood Woman’s Club: A Century of Service to Country and Community" and find a souvenir at The Country Store’s with its great selection of unique gifts and books.
