Spicy Olive Oil

450ml / 17fl olive oil (not virgin)
20g ¾ dried red chilli flakes
3- 4 whole dried red chillies

Pour the olive oil into sterilised, sealable glass bottle using a funnel. Add the chilli flakes and dried chillies. Seal the bottle. 

Gently warm some water in a saucepan. Bain-marie the bottle with the mixture. Heat slowly for about 3 hours. 

Keep the bottle in a cool, dark place, shaking the bottles once a week. As time goes on the oil will become redder and hotter.
