    Default Olive Oil again

    About a month ago Gary mentioned the olive oil store in Virginia
    Beach, VA. We went there yesterday and I was overwhelmed by the
    variety of olive oils there. There are oils from many countries that
    I never knew produced olive oil, much less really good. All of the
    oils are first pressing and have been analyzed. How about a
    EVOO/Blood Orange. The orange is actually pressed with the olives,
    not just something that is later added. I love it.

    They also carry Balsamic vinegar. You can taste all of the oils and
    vinegars and if you like it, you bottle it A 200ml bottle was $13.
    We got a great lesson. And I came home with 6 bottles, oil and
    vinegar. Now to start putting them to good use.

    $65/liter is quite a lot. The markup on those, especially being in
    distributed in bulk like that, must be enormous. You can buy some
    pretty darn good Tuscano or California olive oil for $15/liter.

    And the "Good wine" argument doesn't work with me. It ain't wine.

    You can, but if you want something that's a notch better, $65/liter
    is probably about right. That's what I pay ($33/500 ml) for
    a good DOP olive oil.

    along with some naga morich hot peppers, some friends are raving about it,

    They do the same with nasty vodka... novel way to cover up bad olive
    oil. That's Italian Tex Mex.

    Exactly. It's always better to buy a better product and infuse it
    yourself if you like flavored oils or vinegars.
