botulism and steeping garlic in oil

epabella | Feb 19, 2010 01:13 AM

is this risk reserved to just olive oil or am i not supposed to steep garlic in any edible oil?

as a workaround,

what if i nuke the oil on low for several minutes before i steep the garlic?

what if i toast the garlic before steeping it?

what if i nuke the oil and toast the garlic before steeping?

thanks in advance and peace to all.
