In Praise of Olive Oil

Olive oil is one of the great joys in life, never to be taken for granted. I purchased these 500 millilitre glass bottles of Terra Delyssa Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Tunisia for $6.99 apiece.

Why Terra Delyssa? It's got everything I want in a bottle of olive oil:

It's USDA-certified organic.

It's date stamped (the olive oil in these bottles was cold-pressed on January 2, 2014, with a suggested expiry date of January 1, 2016. Lot 024).

Glass bottles and excellent design.

Tasty -- slightly peppery, spicy and fresh.      

Reasonable price (compare with one "meal" at a "fast food" joint).

Web site with lots of information and ideas <here.>

This one's a winner. Please feel free to add additional suggestions - always welcomed. Calories in olive oil - about forty per teaspoon, so consume reasonably. Can also be used as a skin and hair product. Long live olive oil!

I'm a fan of olive oil cooking myself.

I've always liked that olive oil is able to be combined with other herbs and such and then you have whatever herb/flavoring you put in there olive oil. :p My friend and I used to do it all the time as teenagers. Good for cooking and pagan rituals. Lol.
