    Pets'R'us's Note:

    This is always in my kitchen cupboard and has many uses. Add to pasta, soups, stir fries, sauces, bruchetta, dips, etc. For a spicy bread dip use the oil and add fresh chopped herbs (parsley, basil, coriander) and garlic, add balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper to taste!!! The oil does not have to mature, it is ready to use after you have made it. Don't forget to add this to your gift baskets!

      WOW, this oil is exceptional! Kickin good! I made it about a week ago and finally got to try it last night.Rubbed it on some veggies before I roasted them, what a treat! As mentioned by the first reviewer, it would make great gifts, I am looking for some fancy little bottles to put another batch in to give as little extras for Christmas. As suggested we tried it as an appy with French bread chunks and added garlic, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper, Nuuummmmy!! We will be doing that again! Thanks for sharing a very versitile recipe!!

      This really has a KICK to it! I love it for stir frys. I used habanero peppers. I only used 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil. This is delicious. I'll make sure that I always have this on hand. Thanks for the recipe :)
