Citrus Habanero Olive Oil
With origins in South America, these chilli peppers got their name from the Cuban city La Habana. On the Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) habanero pepper is 100 times hotter than jalapeno – so brace yourself! Once the heat subsides, habaneros have a citrusy, fruity taste. Laconiko enhances this with a refreshing and tart lime blend offering up a flavor happening that will rock meats, seafood or vegetables. In salsa, on tacos. Drizzle it over a pizza to fire it up a notch or two or, for that matter, on anything when you just want to turn up the heat!
Laconiko citrus infusions are cold pressed extraction of the essential oils of the citrus peel where nutrients and flavor are concentrated. taste the Laconiko Difference.
