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!
