I tried making chili oil a few weeks back...slowly heated the oil with dried chilies..unfortunately I had used the jar previously to store whole cloves ( washed 3 times even!)....now thats all I can smell or taste in the oil. I'd like to try another batch-bear in mind I like it very very hot:)! in a new glass container of course.
ps is it chillis or chilis? or chillies...agh! maybe I should just say chili peppers.
