De l'Huile Épicée~
A fun little sunny day project~
One of our favorite restos in Little Italy used to offer this oil..well.. a similar oil.. with crunchy pizza dough triangles before lunch..they don't anymore.. I ran out of out pre-made bought kind and decided to make some after reading Josée DiSatsios take on them..
Nothing is simpler..and I love to reuse favorite jars/ vessels~
Simply warm your EVOO and add crushed chili peppers and garlic..let them infuse.. Take off the stove and again let it infuse .. remove garlic as soon as possible though as it will not keep in the oil.. strain and put in your jars..I left herbs and chilis in..Keep refrigerated~My little jars were sterilized~
It tastes as fresh as a summer day in Provence:) below.. La Fontaine De Vaucluse area..Love at first sight~
