- Then we include olive oil and put it in a self-closing bag. We add the lemon peel and close the bag. Another option is to include the olive oil and lemon peels in a container that can withstand high temperatures.
- We put it in a bain-marie to infuse it for 3 hours.
- Then we let it rest until the next day.
Within 24 hours we can store it in a bottle and use it when we need it.
