SDCF - Rapeseed Infused Chilli Oil

SDCF - Rapeseed Infused Chilli Oil

Collaboration between South Devon Chilli Farm and The Seed Co (Now Filbert’s Fine Foods) , has resulted in this chilli oil. I have in front of me a small bowl of the oil and some fresh crusty bread for dipping.

Rapeseed oil does not have the flavour of some of the better Olive oils, but it light nutty flavour works very well when infused with the chilli, the chilli is not over powering, else this oil could be a dangerous weapon in the kitchen for roasting.

Ingredients: Rapeseed Oil (99%), Dried Chillies (1%).

Adding the chillies to the oil is not an instant process, they first steep the oil with a carefully selected blend of hot dried chillies, before filtering the oil, they then add just a few flakes of milder chillies to the oil, which is what we can see in the bottle.

I have used rapeseed oil in my kitchen for a few years now, it is a great universal oil, it makes the best roast potatoes, and is also makes a great base for a salad dressing. Practically all of which are enhanced with the use of this chilli oil version.

Oils like this are not cheap, but at £4.50 for a 250ml bottle it offers excellent value for money, it is available direct from the South Devon Chilli Farm or via there ever expanding  network of retailers
