When you think about an all-purpose olive oil, this might not be the first flavor that comes to mind. However, it is very versatile. Best known for making “To Die For” blood orange brownies, rice crispy treats, or banana bread. Make a vinaigrette for salads with our balsamic vinegar. Drizzle over a triple crème cheese with a sprinkle of chili flakes, sauté scallops or calamari, drizzle on chicken or steak or toss in vegetables before roasting. You can also roast butternut squash and carrots with the blood orange olive oil to add warmth and flavor.
Made fresh from California's extra virgin Arbequina Olive Oil. Family farmed and unfiltered olive oil. Cold-pressed Arbequina olive oil is infused with blood oranges.
Pairs well with any balsamic or even mixed with most olive oils to heighten flavor.
