SPICE UP DAD’S DAY
This chilli plant is a great gift for heat-loving dads – especially when you add homemade touches like fiery flavoured oil and salt
Dads can be tricky to buy for – I certainly fall back on old favourites like socks and craft beer year after year. But this Father’s Day, 16 June, I’m opting for a gift with more fire. Available in store, our British indoor chilli plant looks fab and provides an ongoing supply of fresh, ruby-red chillies – just the thing if he’s a spice addict. Add an extra-special touch with chilli-infused oil, made by popping a couple of whole chillies with their skins pricked into a bottle of olive oil, or chilli salt, with finely chopped chillies just stirred through the salt. Once the plant has borne more of its fiery fruit, Dad can tie up the chillies in bunches to dry out, ready to use in curries or marinades.
