I tried the habanero oil on my chicken today: brushed chicken pieces with habanero oil, sprinkled with salt & pepper, and roasted them. Very tasty.

The Wife tossed some winter vegetables with the oregano oil I made and roasted those. She said the oregano oil was great.

Finally, I sautéed some chopped onion in a fair amount of a mix of habanero oil, olive oil, and butter. I let it sauté over medium heat until the onions were a deep golden, then added a roasted Idaho russet potato that I cut into chunks, along with salt and pepper. I stirred that, then set the clock for five minutes and went in the other room to let it sauté (so I wouldn’t be tempted to stir). Then back when the bell went off, turned the potato chunks, and let them cook undisturbed for another four minutes. I let that cool a while, then ate. It was wonderful. The fresh habanero oil is a slight bit hotter than the habanero oil I just used up, but still just a noticeable warmth in the mouth. What’s much better with the fresher batch is the duration: my mouth stayed nicely warm for 15 minutes after finishing the potato.
