Seitenbacher Chili Oil Organic -- 8.4 fl oz
This chili oil is not what I expected at all. I was expecting at least a mild to medium heat in regards to the chili flavor. You can taste the sunflower oil which is a fine flavor by itself, but there is not really any spice to speak of. When I put some on my tongue and ran it around my mouth it almost tastes kind of "dusty". I had to put about a teaspoon in my mouth to get ANY chili flavor, and even then I only felt it just barely in the back of my throat. I can't imagine that this oil would impart any noticeable flavors if used as a cooking oil, or even as a garnish. It would have to be drenched and who wants that?! Stillwater Olive Oil Company makes a Chili Oil that is amazing! I wanted to try this one cause it's easier to order from Vitacost (I live in the Virgin Islands), but I will not order this oil again. Blegh!
