Why This Recipe Works
We were tempted to buy the expensive bottles of infused red pepper and garlic olive oil at fancy stores, but this flavorful oil is easy (and cheap) to make at home. Our Spicy Red Pepper and Garlic Oil recipe can be prepared and then refrigerated for up to three days (let it come to room temperature before serving). While developing the recipe, we found that crushing the garlic with the broad side of a knife blade or the concave side of a wooden spoon were effective ways to smash garlic cloves and easily remove the skins.
