Have You Tried Cooking with Essential Oils?

It’s really very easy to cook and bake with essential oils as long as you remember two things: (1) only use 100% pure essential oils labeled as safe for internal consumption and (2) essential oils are extremely strong- it only takes a very small amount of essential oils to get the flavor you want.  Don’t overdo it.  Start with a little.  You can always add more.  Here are a few rules of thumb to keep in mind:

3 drops of lemon essential oil= the zest of one whole lemon (or about 1 tablespoon of lemon zest)

1-2 drops of lime essential oil= the zest of one whole lime (or about 1-2 teaspoons of lime zest)

1 drop of peppermint essential oil= 28 cups of peppermint tea

So when adding peppermint essential oil to foods, start with a clean toothpick and dip it into the bottle of essential oil and then into the food dish.  Mix and taste.  If more peppermint flavor is desired, then grab a clean toothpick and repeat.  Usually 1-2 toothpicks of peppermint is plenty for an entire batch of cupcakes or brownies.  Keep in mind flavor usually intensifies over time, so if you’re making food 1-2 days ahead of an event, under season a little as the flavor will continue to develop.

Honey-Lime Fruit Salad

This is THE BEST fruit salad I have ever had!  I’ve made it many times, and every time I make it, people go wild for it!!  Be prepared for everyone to want the recipe for this one!

I make one change from the recipe from Classy Cooking- instead of the zest of two limes as called for in the original recipe, I use 3-4 drops of lime essential oil.  AMAZING!!
