Village Olive Oil

Boy I wish I could share this with you so you could taste this green gold. The olive oil processing company here in the village has been working overtime to process the last harvest and here is the result. I bought 3  – 5 liter jugs of this precious stuff from a neighbor. We go through a lot of this and making 1 Spanish tortilla takes about 1/2 liter of oil.

    Would love to try it. Wonder how different it tastes from what I’m used to!

      It’s really lovely… “intenso” & very green in color. Full of flavor! Don’t be fooled with Italian olive oil as most of it comes from Spain and labeled as Italian. As you know oil in Spain is sold in “grades” depending on what you cook.

    So April is olive harvest time it seems. I’d love to come visit during olive harvest! So romantic! And the resulting oil must be wonderful. May I take it home in my suitcase?
