You have to be careful, though, and read the labels. Some peanut oils are a blend of peanut oil and other oils. I only buy the ones on sale (at the Asian grocery) and that aren't blends.
As we speak, a new batch of chili flakes have been sitting in peanut oil for a day just waiting for me to heat it up for more hot oil.
I will have to check an Asian store next time I am in town.
I soaked my flakes this time for three days on the counter. I was short one cup of oil, so i bought some yesterday and added the soaking flakes and one cup of peanut oil in a sauce pan and heated.
I strained mine this time with a cone shaped coffee filter inside a funnel. Wow, so pretty and pristine looking.
I ate pot stickers again for lunch. 3 days in a row now. I am almost out, so on the list they go. Costco is where I get mine.
