This garlicky chili crisp comes from the home kitchen of a third generation sesame oil producer, made with his own cold-pressed sesame oil.
Toasted sesame oil has a low smoke point. It's rare to see chili crisps made with them because crisp usually require oil to be heated to very high temperatures. In this case, the producer heats the oil low and slow, until it reaches 107°. This is hot enough to stabilize the ingredients, but well within the smoke point of 177°, preserving the healthy nature of the oil.
When trying to write the product description for this, I realized my family ate the whole jar, so as memory serves…. It’s salty, sweet, strongly flavored with garlic and sesame oil, and much spicier. Give it a try. Let it be your new Lao Gan Ma. Reach for it always. Enjoy the cold-pressed sesame flavor. It's a new Yun Hai classic.
(Tip: We also offer Su Chili Crisp, our #1 bestseller and completely different from Bullet. Use Bullet when you’re looking for a hit of sweet and spicy flavor, but let Su be the bringer of the ma in your mala.

About DongHe Oil
Dong He Oil is a traditional producer of cold-pressed oils and stone-ground sesame pastes located in Chiayi, Taiwan.

Operating in the original wood-beamed, brick building with much of the original machinery, Dong He upholds the same traditional craft principles that distinguishes their products from competitors. They continue to produce cold-pressed sesame, peanut and camellia seed oils today, and have added stone-ground sesame pastes, peanut butters, and a line of specialty sauces featuring house ingredients and family recipes.
