8 Immortals Sichuan Chili Oil
J's my husband of near 3 decades and we meet in the kitchen all the time to create delicious beauty to be regularly eaten. We love to cook together. Music + who's in charge is that non-verbal negotiable thing. It just happens.
This chili oil? It's J's terrain and a Kung Fu journey to a proper chili oil from our kitchen to yours. Me? I follow his lead on this one. And I manage the Bay tree and garlic growing + we're getting ready to plant Sichuan Peppercorn shrubs. A whole row that is because I love plants and pray I succeed!
Backstory: The Eight Immortals are a group of legendary Taoists who are believed to have achieved the highest honors of their faith. Through their study, good works, and inherent virtues they became god-like immortal beings, or xian. Said to now live on islands in the Bohai Sea, the Eight Immortals are believed to have once been living people. Most were supposedly born during the Tang and Song Dynasties.
In Chinese mythology the Eight Immortals are believed to know the secrets of nature. They represent separately male, female, the old, the young, the rich, the noble, the poor, and the humble Chinese.
The eight immortals also correspond to virtues and practices for maintaining perfect health in Chinese medicine.
J experimented for quite a while chasing the flavors of a more traditional Sichuan chili oil. The oil is great on its own but also plays well with other ingredients to make marinades, dipping sauces and in stews and soups. Versatile and adds a unique flavor and heat to a variety of cuisines.
Comes with our 8 IMMORTALS DIPPING SAUCE Recipe. You can adjust the heat and stretch the flavor to your liking. SO GOOD on everything!
Yes, we meet locally for drop offs. Thank you, Jen
