That's what I figured.  Need to eat more pickles or something to get and empty jar!

Get a small disposable container from the grocery store if nothing else.

Any reason not to do something with the oil that the peppers are packed in?  It's very flavorful?

I usually pour it into the rest of the chili oil when I use the last of the peppers in the jar.

Cool!  That's what I did.

I love this stuff and have converted a number of people.  I am particularly fond of it drizzled over hummus and of course, pizza.

Craig,

I purchased a few Calabrian chilis yesterday in oil at the 9th St. Italian Market in Philly.  I didn't taste them yet though, but will try them.  I think they look bigger than the ones you use.

Craig,

All the foods at Di Bruno Bros. aren't cheap.  :-D  http://www.dibruno.com/italian-market  Di Bruno Bros. does carry Duck Prosciutto now as a new item, but they didn't have any when I was there yesterday..  http://www.dibruno.com/duck-prosciutto.html Look at that price.  :o They do carry great Prosciutto di Parma Rotondo Dolce and other Prosciuttos and many other great cheeses though.

A couple people have asked me how I make Calabrian Chili oil. Here is how I do it:

I destem and chop up a dozen or so Calabrian chilies, I prefer the long ones from Tutto Calabria

Do you prefer the long ones for taste or prep or?

Thanks,
jb

For taste, I've had some round ones I didn't particularly care for (but I've also had some round ones that taste very good).

$42 + shipping for 93 oz = $0.50/oz
(2 day shipping was $12.25 for me).

Go big or go home?

FYI-

In case you wanted to grown your own chiles, I found a source that sells these Calabrese Hot Chile PLANTS. www.chileplants.com
Looks like its a new variety for them this year.  I think I may try it out depending on how big of a garden I plan for the year (Usually start seeds in November late, or Early December). Plant available for ordering I think end of January, though probably not available until later.  Also this is a great resource for impossible to find, obscure Mexican chiles.  They sell them (pods) fresh from their unsold plants at end of season.  No I am not affiliated, but though was relevant to thread for sourcing.

I've converted a few people to this pepper oil.

I cooked pizzas for friends the other night.  The hisband never had calabrian pepper oil before.   If I gave him a straw I think he would have used it.  LOL

Craig,

Yes and so did everyone else that had a slice.  If you recall I loved the Calabiran chilli oil at your home.  ;D  Of course my pizza could use a little more work.  :-D The other photos of that pizza are on my BS thread.

Ordered two containers for 25$ with  shipping from Taylor's Market thru amazon. it's been 10 days and no word about shipping, I am salivating to try this.

I presume everyone purchases the VT smoke and cure  6+1 pack. I couldn't justify spending 50$ on sausages (hah) right now with the holidays. Anyone else have delayed shipping with Taylor's Market?

They have always shipped my orders fast. I know there have been times where there have been delays for other members. I think they had to do with waiting on product to clear customs.
