Introduction: Mini Harvest Due to Excessive Rain
Our first organized Raised garden planning, brought 3 miniature peppers SIGH.
It rained a lot, but we had bees. So I thought, well at least they were pollinated.
So what on earth can I do with these tiny Peppers?
Step 1: I Have an Idea!!!!!
-2-3 oz of Extra Light Virgin Oil
-1 small empty glass bottle(I used empty Vodka sample bottle,
which I had left over from making my own Vanilla )
- Very carefully cut 3 very hot ripe small peppers in small strips. You do not want to get
oils of hot peppers on your fingers or in your mouth. It burns terribly!!!!
I will check it in a few weeks to see and taste how hot it is
Step 2: This Is My Favorite Olive Oil to Use, Because....
This Olive Oil has a very light taste, and I got spoiled using this oil. When i was making my own Mayonnaise many years ago.
=>UPDATE 3/9/2015 BOTULISM DANGER
the peppers need to be dried, or cooked in high temperatures.<=
This is again a very short instructable. I believe this is frugal living, in its best form lived.
I am out on short term disability after major trauma. I have sometimes trouble expressing myself in three languages. The curse of being TRILINGUAL!
Constructive critisisism is gladly accepted. I have attempted to use the receved feedback already.
Step 3: Oh HOT CABANERO PEPPERS. LOL
Although the season was short, I had a late season harvest ( tiny, I admit).
So I had some empty samples left of my Vanilla refill bottles, I am so glad I hung onto them. ;)
This time I cut the peppers again without touching them.
Maneuvered them carefully into the bottle, and thenfilled with
above shown "
Light Virgin Olive Oil"
Step 4: HOW TO USE THE INFUSED OIL
Please do not what I did. I added a green pepper, to the first bottle with the Yellow Peppers,
I was so eager to get it in there, I did not pour out some oil first.
=> my silly mistake<=
A little oil spilled on my fingers, no big deal. Or so I thought.
They have not been in the oil all that long, let me check how hot the oil is.
( I went to lick 1 fingertip with my tongue)
BAD IDEA. even short period infusing makes one hot oil. Imagine e running to the fridge, to dip my tongue in full fat milk, which seems to help the Burning feeling.
I would say, Use with caution in any recipe, you wantto add some heat to.
Thank you for looking at my instructables.
