First of all, thanks for your purchase! After opening the jar, you’ll see the oil on top. The chilis will have settled to the bottom. Now grab a spoon and mix up the contents. Smells great, huh? Your mission is to mix both oil and chili together to make a nice thick paste. The chilis that are at the bottom will have settled and compacted a bit while on the shelf. This is completely natural. It may take some muscle to dig into the chilis and slowly get the oil mixed in. Keep mixing until no chilis are left on the bottom. It’s now ready for serving, a few drops at a time. Trust us, you’ll be rewarded for your efforts!
