Infused Oils....DANGER! Will Robinson!

alkapal | Oct 18, 200703:11 PM     25

OK Hounds, just think of the robot warning Will about the DANGER in Lost in Space**.
I am concerned that I have no robot to warn me about making infused oils.

Please tell me your food science, tips, techniques for infusing oils with:
1. garlic
2. basil
3. any leafy herb
4. seeds like cumin, fenugreek, cardamom
5. woody herbs like rosemary
6. your favorite

Best type of oil to use? Strain or not strain? Fridge or no fridge? Sterilize bottle or no (OK even I know that one).

A couple of other threads on infused oils seemed to peter out with unanswered queries.

Thanks! (no evil Dr. Smith need apply)
