Infused Oil

Every year John and I give home made gifts to my extended family.  We have done various cookies, of course, and last year we ventured into coasters.  That worked really well, and we needed something just as awesome for this year.  We settled on infused oils.  I had made them a few times before and it turned out really well, so it was sure to be a hit.  

Want to know how I made it?

First, I put a mix of olive and veggie oil in a pan with a heap o' red pepper flakes in. 
I warmed it over a VEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRY low heat until the aroma started to fill the kitchen.  Then I poured it through a cheesecloth-lined sieve into a bowl.
The finished oil had a beautiful red-orange tinge. 
It was funneled into beautiful bottles.
I don't have a photo of the finished products with the cute tags, but they were a big hit!

  2. Wonderful. Do you have any idea how long they will "keep" in the fridge?

  3. @YolandaI'm not sure how long it will keep, but I have had some in my fridge for a few weeks and it still tastes good!

  4. Oh, yummy! This sounds really good. My husband loves spicy, and I do too. Going to have to try this.
