funnel placed in each bottle neck. Divide the fenugreek leaves and cloves
between the bottles. Pour in the oil to within 3mm (1/8th in) of the top, seal
and shake well. Keep in a cool dark place for 1 to 2 weeks before using to allow
the flavors to develop. Shake the bottles from time to time.

oil through it into 2 freshly sterilized bottles. Seal the bottles and label.
The oil is now ready to use.
