Olive Oil


Buy cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil. Unfortunately, even that standard includes many lousy oils. Superior olive oils have low rancidity, but you can’t read that on the label. Worse, many olive oils are illegally thinned with lesser nut and vegetable oils. Until the olive oil business devises a superior standard, you’ll have to taste a lot of oils to learn what’s nice and what’s not, and rely on the better labels, such as Frantoia. On the labels of better oils you will find a batch number and best-by date, and all the olives will have come from a single farm
