Don’t refrigerate it, leave it at room temperature.

The type that had to undergo one final filtration process:

Passing through the luscious crevices of a ‘devout Catholic’ virgin, right into the bottle :wink:

Cold Pressed extra virgin olive oil.

Make sure you check the ingredients and it doesnt have refined olive oil in as well.

Buy it in a tin. Store it out of sunlight.

I drink mine from a shot glass. It doesnt taste bad but its easier to put some juice in your mouth first then drink from the shot glass and swallow.

#7

I tried EVOO in shakes; holy shit it tasted horrid.

I had to switch back to regular olive oil.

gotta disagree with Rock on the EVOO in shakes. i put it in chocolate mixed with a little coconut extract and it’s freakin great. just makes it taste very creamy.


#11

To minimize the EVOO taste on the shake add some ground cinnamon, plus splenda as needed.

I love the kalamata [or black if you don’t like the seeds] olives that come in EVOO.

Give those a shot on a salad/veggies, with a greek burger [search this site for the burger] or do it like me: Make a plate with cottage cheese, tomato, broccoli and some walnuts “hours dourve” for a tasty snack.

You can use the EVOO in the jar and eat the olives, BONUS!
