Eureka Lemon Olive Oil
Since it grows year-round and abundantly, the Eureka lemon is the variety you will recognize from the produce aisle. Brisk and tart, the taste of lemon is the taste of sunshine and citrus, a perennial favorite. We have captured the light, refreshing flavor of ripe Eureka lemon by pressing just-picked fruits with freshly-picked ripe olives.
Pressing ripe fruits and ripe olives together is a brilliant process producing "fused" oils. Whereas the traditional process of *infusing* olive oil with herbs, spices or fruits can cause oils to breakdown and spoil more quickly, the fusion process creates vibrant flavors in oils that stay fresh.
Our tart citrusy Eureka Lemon Olive Oil is just perfect to saute shrimps or scallops, or to drizzle on chicken or fish. Heat Eureka Lemon Olive Oil to dip crab, lobster or shrimp instead of butter. Try Eureka Lemon Olive Oil to marinate baked asparagus, or use instead of butter in a boxed lemon pound cake recipe.
Eureka Lemon Olive Oil pairs beautifully with many of our fruity balsamic vinegars: Blackberry Ginger, Blueberry, Black Cherry, Black Currant, Cinnamon Pear, Strawberry or Raspberry to make an excellent marinade or light vinaigrette.
