Anyone else make chili oil?
After getting my last harvest of peppers i decided to make some chili oil. Dehydrated them and pulled out a mix of the thai and cayenne. Turned out pretty good but might increase the amount of aromatics next time. Didn't have any garlic cloves so want to add that, too. Any other recommendations for adding to the oil?

Love chili oil. Make it occasionally but oftentimes just buy it. Love to make popcorn with it and some Szechuan peppercorn.

You look to be almost to Chili Crisp, which is probably one of my favorite condiments ever. Always just buy the “Angry Chinese Lady” brand.

a slightly easier way to do it (also works for cannabis oil):

1) put the oil and flavorings in a jar and seal tightly
2) put the jar(s) in a pot of water (dont cover the lids)
3) bring to a boil and then let simmer for a couple of hours or longer

the oil will steep in the jars.

That sounds like a solid idea. I'd still have to strain the aromatics, but not have to watch the temperature as much. Tried to keep this one between 230 and 240.

I use this recipe, and it is great. My adjustments are the following:


-I dried my thai chilis and ground them up.
-after all is done and sits for a few days, I strained out the shechuan to get just the oil. I find the sechuan seeds are way to strong of a flavor to chew on.
-I reheated this oil and added fresh thai chilis and let cook for about 5 mins.


I love the fresh chilis in this. I find it is so much better when doing this method, and I use it often.

Never have... but I love cooking with it.

I've made garlic infused oil before... so good.

I've been wanting to make some, following Marion's recipe. I guess I should just do it!
