“There's nothing wrong with giving homemade holiday gifts, just as long as they're something somebody would actually want and use. Thanks to things like fruitcakes so dense they have their own gravitational fields, making edible gifts has gotten a bad name, but that's not an issue with this chipotle oil, especially if that certain someone on your gift list likes the spicy stuff!”

Oh wow, is this chipotle oil good! Well worth the week's wait after making it. The first thing I did was make popcorn with this and it made the perfect spicy popcorn. I can't wait to try this on other foods. Just two ingredients and so easy to make. I'll definitely keep some of this oil on hand.

Thank-you Chef John! I'm allergic to corn and most processed food has corn in it! So I have to make most of my condiments by scratch if not all of it. So this came out wonderful and I love it. Please keep them coming you are definitely an inspiration:) Thank-You
