Wash 1/4 cup fresh fir or spruce needles; pat dry with tea towel. Transfer needles to 3/4- or 1-cup capacity glass jar. In small saucepan, heat 1/2 cup canola oil over high heat for 1 minute. Pour hot oil over needles (the oil should cover the needles). Close jar and let rest at room temperature overnight.

Test kitchen tip

You can pick your fir needles right off the tree. Some specialty grocery stores sell dried fir or spruce needles. If you use dry needles, reduce the amount to 1 1/2 tbsp. You can also substitute rosemary.
