Our organic extra virgin olive oil is great for daily cooking uses. Its smoke point is somewhere around 374-405°F (190-207°C) which makes it a good choice for most cooking methods. This olive oil has a slightly nutty flavor and is great for salad dressings and veggie bakes. We buy this olive oil from a wholesaler in the Netherlands and the olives with which this olive oil is made are of mixed origin (coming from various plantations).
The organic olives are hand picked and placed in cases. After this they are processed in an olive mill. First the olives are winnowed (removal of dust, branches, leaves and heavy objects) then they are washed with cold water (removal of sand and extraneous bodies) transported over a shaker to remove the water and little stones. Then the olives are either crushed or grinded, to obtain a paste, from which the oil can be extracted . The paste is put in a press, where a must (oil, water solution) is gathered, the water and oil are separated by a centrifuge, after which the oil is stored in steel silo’s and bottled. The process is called cold press, because no heating takes place.
