Just a Few More Days
You've heard the saying...the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. We just wanted to let you know the shop will be closed a few more days while we complete updates to the facility. As always, you can shop online to purchase all your favorite flavored and infused olive oils and balsamic vinegars.
If you haven't already tried our best selling olive oil, now is a great time. Garlic Mushroom EVOO is a favorite of both staff and customers. One of our regular customers described it like this, "The Garlic EVOO tastes like fresh, raw garlic, while the Garlic Mushroom EVOO tastes like a rich, roasted garlic." That is the perfect description. The mushrooms add a earthiness that takes the garlic to the next level of yumminess.
Garlic Mushroom EVOO can be used tossed on pasta or vegetables, rubbed on steak, drizzled on popcorn, or as a bread dipper. It pairs well with 25 Star Dark Balsamic, Fig Dark Balsamic, and Italian Lambrusco Red Wine vinegars.
Here is my favorite way to use it:
Cut up some fresh onions, carrots, sweet potatoes, Brussel sprouts, and any other veggies you like. Do not dice them or cut into small pieces. Keep the pieces about 1". Toss them in a Ziplock bag and drizzle in 1 or 2 tablespoons of Garlic Mushroom EVOO, and add some salt and pepper. Toss vigorously, then spread in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking pad or parchment paper, and roast in the oven at 450F for 30-35 minutes. Toss the veggies with cooked pasta and a little more Garlic Mushroom EVOO (if needed) and enjoy!
