Preparation

Chop mushrooms or chilies in a food processor until fine. Place in a pot with the oil and heat until mixture begins to bubble. Let cook 10-15 seconds and remove from heat. Swirl until just warm. Strain into a bowl through 4 layers of cheesecloth. Squeeze well to extract as much oil as possible. Pour into a sterilized jar or bottle; seal tightly, refrigerate, and use with 1 week for best flavor. Makes about 3/4 cup mushroom oil or about 1 cup chili oil. Note 1: Experiment with combinations of dried, fresh, and smoked chilies to add different flavor dimensions to your oil, not just heat. Try fresh poblanos, jalapeos, and serranos or dried anchos and pasillas. Roast one of the fresh or dried chilies to add flavor. Add black pepper to the mix; it makes a truly amazing oil. Mushroom oil can be made from packaged, dried mushrooms such as porcini and shiitake. Note 2: If you filter through coffee filters, rinse them and squeeze dry before use. You will need some patience and probably several filters. Pour the oil little by little and stir occasionally. You will recover almost all the oil if you use dried chilies, however, the more fresh chilies, the less chili oil since the oil will bind and be hard to separate after being infused.
