    What is peri oil?

  3. ooh,one of my favourites! It’s quite easy to make if unavailable in the store. In a small saucepan, Over low heat, slow boil (musn’t fry)8-10 very hot Birds Eye chillies in two cups of regular sunflower oil. Boil over low heat, for about 15 minutes. When cool, store chillies and oil in a jar with a tightly fitting lid. You can add a clove or three of garlic as well to oil but that’s optional, I love garlic so I do!
