So! Short but nifty trick. Another wedding project I took on was infusing the olive oil. When I researched it, I found short ways and long ways. Since I didn't have time for a long way, I decided to try the short one out. Again, I made a variation that I am thinking others might find handy :) Not mention it worked!
Always a plus when experimenting....
Anyway :) As often happens when I am doing something new or a million things at once, I was missing a key tool for the olive oil. Since I was planning to serve this oil to a lot of people I didn't want all the little chunks of herbs still in it, so I really needed a strainer of some kind. Another piece of the puzzle was that I wasn't using my own kitchen, since I was living with my parents and they were in between places themselves. So there we were, my mom and I, in a bachelor's kitchen with only a few of our familiar cooking tools and a need for a very fine strainer.
My first thought, I admit, was to try some paper towels and a funnel. I really don't recommend it. Instead, you should do what my genius mother though to do! Grab the french press!
