The modern method of smoking foods on the grill evolved from its prehistoric origins as a way to preserve food, to its use today as a method of imparting a delicate smoky flavor to meat, fish, and poultry on the grill.
Somewhere between mesquite and oak in its intensity, and prized for its slower burn rate, the wood of the olive tree is a Spanish favorite for grilling fish, poultry, and meats.
Olive Wood Smoked Olive Oil, the latest addition to our tasting bar, brings that delicious smoky quality to your cooking – with or without the use of a grill.
Use Olive Wood Smoked Olive Oil ($14.75/bottle) for marinating vegetables, fish, poultry or beef. Roast almonds with a little Olive Wood Smoked Olive Oil, rosemary, and sea salt; or add some of this delicious infused oil to your next olive or sun-dried tomato tapenade.
Try Olive Wood Smoked Olive Oil in potato and roasted vegetable salads, drizzled over chicken before roasting, in homemade BBQ sauce, even tossed with pasta. Olive Wood Smoked Olive Oil pairs well with Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic and Jalapeno White Balsamic.
