3 cups extra virgin olive oil
2 large onions – preferably Vidalia – chopped coarsely
8 cloves of garlic – chopped
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice from 1 lemon juice
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon: oregano, thyme, marjoram, savory, sage, and basil
For lamb, add 1/2 cup chopped rosemary (fresh rosemary is best but, dry will do in a pinch).
Add all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Taste and adjust amounts as needed. Best if made at least a day ahead of time to allow flavors to meld. If you have any left over, you can store it in the fridge for quite a long time.
