Local Freshly Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Did you know it's been estimated that 80% of the olive oil you are using, probably isn't even all olive oil? And if it is all olive oil, chances are that it is old, possibly even rancid and has lost all of its medicinal benefits. At that point it just becomes poison.
Rancid oil does contain free radicals that might increase your risk of developing diseases such as cancer or heart disease down the road. immediately ill, but can cause harm over time.
So what do you do? Buy local!!!
I have sourced an amazing 100% olive oil from my friend Max at First Steps Farm. The olives were picked and pressed less than a mile apart on the East end of Ojai...prime olive country. If you've never had fresh pressed olive oil, you are in for a treat. You'll never go back to that old stuff again.
The best way to enjoy the full flavor and benefits of this oil is to drizzle it on after ALL cooking is done...like a garish.
VERY LIMITED QUANTITIES, ONCE THEY ARE GONE... THEY ARE GONE ;) TILL NEXT SEASON
