Taste and top off with a little more olive oil if you want. The small jar on the bottom of the photo is the first batch of harissa made with a mortar a pestle rather than electric food processor. The ingredients are the same but the result is a little more rustic and the oil does not get encorporated completely. (The first batch of harissa is also shown at the top of the page.)
