Dried Pepper Extract:

Cook's Note: Please wear a mask and gloves while preparing the hot peppers in the oil; it can be a dangerous process.

Take your choice of 6 of the dried peppers. Over a bowl, snap off the tails but try to keep the seeds in the bowl. Fill a large saucepan with 6 to 8 ounces water. Add the peppers and boil over medium heat until you see the skins soften and become moist, about 3 minutes. Then strain a little of the water in the sink but leave enough to blend the peppers, 1 to 1 1/2 ounces. Remember to keep the seeds.

Add the fresh garlic, cumin and the peppers and seeds to a blender and puree. You have now created the paste used to generate the hot oil.

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over low heat for 3 to 4 minutes. CAUTION: the following step may be toxic. Take the dried pepper paste you have just blended and SLOWLY and carefully drop into the hot oil while stirring for about 3 minutes. This will produce a homemade pepper extract
