Olive Oil

The only type of oil I buy anymore is olive oil. I use the extra-light-tasting for all my baking needs and for frying tortillas and stuff, whenever I don't want the rich, olive taste of good extra virgin olive oil. A few months ago, I saw this "new to me" brand of extra virgin olive oil in the market and decided to give it a try.


I liked the fact that it was "made in America" and that I would be reducing my carbon footprint somewhat. :) It isn't organic but it is "sustainably grown" and "contains no genetically modified ingredients."


Wow, is this stuff tasty! It has a deep green color and a fresh fruity aroma and taste! This is the oil I use for making salad dressings and croutons and anytime I want the oil to be the star of the dish!


Nope, I don't get any money for this, just wanted to share what I feel is a great product that is made right here in the good old U.S. of A.! :)

Did you know that extra virgin olive oil is the one that can stand almost 50 times frying without getting bad? I only use that oil only extra virgin not mixed. Use it with everything even for frying french potatoes,cooking salads. the best one is the one got from the first cold pressing, the rest, (lights, softs etc. are mixed with the seeds and other oils).
I´m very happy you have olive oil production in the USA.
Love,
Mararia
