what kind of chillis?

Capsicum frutescens is a common variety of chilli pepper in Lebanon. Easy to grow, many people plant them in pots of their balconies to pickle or dry for use throughout the year. These are grown locally in Beino, and harvested in July/August each year. Dried naturally, there are roughly 10-13 in each bottle.

how hot is the oil?

The oil has a gentle heat to it, so it doesn’t scorch the roof of your mouth preventing you from tasting what’s on your plate! We enjoy the spicy notes it gives to a plate of baba ghanouj and drizzled over  a dish of linguine with lemon and garlic.

what kind of oil is used?

Zejd uses their own own, an extra virgin olive oil produced in Beino, north Lebanon.

making the most of your purchase!

When the oil is finished (or if you have a chilli emergency) tip out the chillis and use in your cooking. They won’t have as much heat as a dried chilli, but still add a pleasant amount of heat. Because they’re milder, you don’t need to worry about removing them before serving the dish!
