Author Notes: The first time I went in a pizzeria in the UK, I remember this chili oil to season my pizza. It was amazing and gave the pizza a spicy kick! This is my take on recreating it. —miche
Makes: 750 ml
milliliters Extra virgin olive oil (medium quality)
tablespoons Crushed dry chili
Whole dry chilies
teaspoon sea salt
teaspoon dried rosemary
- Stuff whole peppers into the preserving bottle. Drop in a teaspoon of dried rosemary, a teaspoon of sea salt, a and a few peppercorns. Pour olive oil into the bottle, filling until about an inch from the top.
- Now, put the bottle in a dry, cool and dark place. Once a week give the bottle a shake and after a few weeks, the oil will change to slightly reddish color. It takes about a month to achieve the desirable hotness.
