Extremely hot!! Cayennes check in at 40,000 Scoville heat units. This flavor fused oil is made by crushing twelve pounds of fresh, ripe cayenne chilies. It is a combination of 12 pounds of chilies for each gallon and 7.6 pounds of 100% organic extra virgin olive oil. The oil and fresh chilies and fused for two hours before decanting and filtering. This artisan olive oil is an essential ingredient for all North African fare: harissa, couscous, seafood, relish, salsa, roasted lamb, chicken, BBQ and chili. Aptly named!
