I love re-purposing glass jars, especially pretty/unique glass jars.
My work colleague V gifted me this empty bottle which is an old port bottle. Sadly there was no port left in it when I got it :( I washed it out thoroughly and filled it with olive oil and chili flakes to make chili oil.
I used the oil to cook a steak last night - it needs more chili. I need to buy some dried chili to add to the bottle to give it more of a kick. This chili oil would also be great for frying any pasta topping. If I can get my hands on another bottle I'd love to make a herb oil - maybe rosemary in extra virgin olive oil to use for salads?
I've also amassed a few empty Glasshouse candle jars which I've re-purposed in my bedroom and bathroom.
