I use olive oil everyday for salad dressings. This fragrant oil comes in a metal container so no light can change the quality of the oil. Since the first order earlier this year, I have purchased the larger size. I initially purchased this olive oil because it is made in Crete, having visited there many years ago. I recommend both the lovely olive oil, and the trip to visit Crete!
Up to now I had been using Costco Brand (Kirkland) Olive Oil. So I was a little worried this wouldn't be that much better. Boy was I wrong! This stuff is lightyears ahead of anything else I have tried. This brand comes in much larger (and cheaper) containers, I wish I had known that before purchasing this one. But quite honestly, this tastes and feels so remarkable I may just continue to use this stuff, even though the quantity is low and the price is high. Just a tablespoon on a salad combined with a good balsamic makes a breathtaking side salad that you won't soon forget. Energetically, this stuff is potent, you can feel it in your body. It's healing!
The flavor of this olive oil is bolder than some store brands, but I don't find it too peppery. It is good for any recipe or dressing.
My wife and I have been looking for a good authentic olive oil for quite a while. We have sampled numerous oils with overrated claims of great taste and complexity much to our disappointment until now! Your olive oil is the first olive oil in QUITE a long time to deliver on taste. The flavor, depth and character of the particular olive used comes through in such a way as to truly make this a very smooth, tasty oil. I like being able to track "the source" from the bottle right back to the farm the olives were harvested from This is a great feature! We will definitely be ordering more from this vendor!!
I primarily use this great product as "medication" for my daughter's mild eczema (dry and itchy skin). She takes a spoonful, and she says it is great, and topically on her arms. It has done wonders: her skin has healed really well, almost back to normal. We also use it in our salad and cooking. This olive oil is better than anything you get in the store.
WE have been using this olive oil for awhile now and it has added a plus to the taste of everything!
This is the best olive oil I have ever tasted. At first it was a little hard to get used to the real olive taste, as I unwittingly had been purchasing a "blend" of other oils sold as olive oil for years. Now that I know the difference, I have become a bit of an olive oil snob. But Ellora Farms is fairly priced for the excellent quality of the product, so it's all I use. The small size even showed up under the Christmas tree for all of my children.
