ISO Your favorite flavored Olive Oil?

I have a 5-hour layover in Chicago. I'm going to stash my luggage in a locker and head on over to the Spice Shop and The Olde Oil Shop. I have room for 6 bottles of oil or vinegar...what are your favorite flavored Olive Oils / Vinegars? I already have Porcini OO, and Lime (but I might get another bottle--it is almost empty). I have cloudberry, basalmic (red and white), white wine, and red wine vinegars besides the usual. What is your favorite flavored OO and what is your favorite vinegar?

I love garlic oil, it's so versatile and basil. Vinegar I would say Aged Balsamic 5 or 10 yr and any citrus vinegar or malt vinegar.

Extra virgin olive oil with garlic, basil or a mixture of herbs, and black pepper.

The train was WAY late--I barely made my connection. There was a fatality ahead of our train (and the train ahead of us), so we sat outside of Cleveland waiting for it to clear. Never, ever try to outrun a train. But, I'll be in MN long enough to mail order olive oil and vinegar from The Olde Oil Shop--I just won't get to taste before I buy--help--which ones would you buy?

I would get a small bottle of the best aged Balsamic I could afford. It is truly amazing. A few drops goes a long way.

I only use garlic infused olive oil and make it myself and in small batches usually only a couple of weeks at the time. I don't have room for everything I'd like to have so if I want other flavors I do them at time of cooking.

How do you 2 make your infused oils? Ahead to store and at time of use/cooking?

I heat the olive oil on medium low heat and add garlic cloves, or whatever flavor I want - heat for a few minutes and let the garlic or whatever stay in the oil until it cools enough to use or store for a short while. I've heard there is a problem with mold with some of the additions so I remove them and keep the oil. You can use the additions but I use them right away or toss if I'm not ready for them. Since I'm not as sophisticated in my taste as some, this suits me well. I only cook for the two of us most of the time.

Thank you licia. Do you cook/brown the garlic or just kinda let it simmer till soft?
