Hot Damn! I love, love, love the unfiltered olive oil that comes straight out of the olive mill. Some olive oil companies call it olio nuovo, some call it limited edition, and some, new oil: whatever it’s called this freshly pressed, unfiltered olive oil is a treat.
I’m going to interject a word of warning here. DO NOT SAVE IT FOR LATER. Use it up pretty quickly. Why? Because when some of the olive fruit is left in the oil it spoils faster, but – hey – you didn’t buy a great extra virgin olive oil to look at – right? Go ahead and mangia!
Olive harvesting in the northern hemisphere started in September and in my U.S. state, Georgia, harvesting is almost over. The first to have olive oil is Georgia Olive Farms and now, for one month only, they are selling their fresh, olio nuovo extra virgin olive oil through their online store. I just bought a six pack so hurry and get yours too.
May the sun shine through your branches.
