  1. Is there an easy way to infuse the olive oil with orange or can it be purchased at a specialty store? Looks delicious and really want to try this.

    1. Certainly! Just remove about half the peel from one orange, cutting away as much as the white pith as you can. Cut the orange peel into strips and place in a half liter bottle of olive oil. Let the oil rest for a week or more and then use.
