To make our delicious and medium-hot Jalapeño Extra Virgin Olive Oil, we crush fresh, ripe jalapeño peppers together with late harvest olives, a process that fully captures the flavor and color of the pepper, creating a bright, aromatic oil you can use in any dish that calls for a little extra heat and flavor. On a hot scale of 1-10, we put it at a 4-5.
Use it is just like you would a hot sauce, or it's a wonderful ingredient to have on hand for any recipe that calls for chilis.
As olive oil is both a natural preservative—literally preserving the flavor of fresh jalapeños—and a conduit for flavor, our jalapeño oil is a no-brainer for a clean, medium-hot flavor any time of the year. As always, our olive oils are all first- and cold-pressed, and grown herbicide and pesticide free.
Harvested: Oct 2021 - Jan 2022
