Carapelli Premium 100% Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
It started with a myth
According to legend, the olive tree came into being as a result of a competition by the Greek god Zeus. Wanting to test the inventiveness of the gods, Zeus offered the City of Athens to the one who produced the most useful gift. The contest came down to Poseidon, god of the sea, who created a horse, and Athena, goddess of war and peace, who created the olive tree. Although the horse would be useful in wars, Zeus chose the olive tree: it provided food and fuel, soothed wounds, and symbolized divine blessing and peace.
I love Olive Oil! I use it in dressings, marinades, Italian dishes and just about whatever floats my boat at the time. One thing I've found is that not all Olive Oils are created equally. There are some good brands and some not so good brands.
I had the opportunity to try Carapellis Premium 100% Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil and this my friends is some good stuff! I was totally impressed that this olive oil had so much flavor. This is really a brand to try next time you are stocking your supply.
Carapelli Olive Oil was founded in 1893 and is still imported from Italy! They strive to provide consistent, premium quality extra virgin olive oil. The Premium 100% Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made with the finest 100% Italian olives.
Carapelli also has some wonderful recipes from their site if you are looking to create something super delish with this olive oil.
