How can I make habenaro oil from the fruit of the plant?
Habenaro, or chili, oil is made by using 1/2 cup whole chilies, 2 tablespoons colored dried peppercorns, and 1 cup canola oil. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Heat to a simmer, reduce heat slightly, and cook just below simmering for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and strain through several layers of cheesecloth into a sterilized glass jar. Label with the date, and store in the refrigerator at all times. Use the oil within one week.
