Small question for you guys, I have a stupid small (1 cup) enameled cast iron dutch oven that I normally sometimes use to roast a head of garlic in olive oil when the oven is on anyways. Can I make infused oils in this on my range?
I was thinking a chili infused oil as I have one large habanero, several jalapenos, too much time on my hands, and too many Superbowl leftovers to merit actually cooking today. Ideas? Other ingredients available are garlic cloves, shallot, scallions, cardamon pods, star anise pods, cloves, ginger, dried arbor chilies, and black peppercorns. Oils available are soybean oil, extra virgin olive oil, and toasted sesame and canola blended oil.
Just feel like doing a project while i watch movies this afternoon. Who knows maybe I'll make some popcorn with the oil. Yes I'm that bored today .
