This month try Infusing Spirits!
I suggest you wear gloves-
Makes 750 ml.
3 Habanero Peppers
1-750 ml. bottle of Tequila or Vodka (don’t be cheap!)
Slice off the Habanero stems & discard. Cut each Pepper in half lengthwise.
Use the end of a potato peeler to remove the seeds.
Don’t rub your eyes or your ANYTHING… these Peppers are hot!
Create your ‘infusion’ in the original liquor bottle. You may need to drink a ‘shot’ to make room for the
Chile Peppers… Add the Habanero’s. Seal the bottle. Store in a cool, dark place for 3 days.
At the end of the third day, strain a ‘shot’ of the infused liquor through double layers of cheesecloth into a small glass. If you are happy with the level of infused heat, strain the remaining liquid, then return the infused liquor to its original bottle.
It will keep beautifully in a cool, dark place that is until you drink it all!
I suggest you store the leftover Habanero Peppers to add to something special like
a Chicken Mole Pablano… I’ll practice on my Mole Sauce, then blog it for y’all.
