E Is For...


E is for EXTRA!
I must confess that I've never investigated the concept of virgin olive oil....much less the idea of being EXTRA virgin. Oh well, I suppose such things are far too deep for an old guy like me. I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving with plenty of good things to eat and the company of those that you love.

I learned a little about olive oil when we were in Israel. The first press of the olives is the finest oil. Then they do a 2nd press, then a 3rd. The oil from the 3rd press is typically used as fuel in oil lamps.

I just recently started using virgin olive oil in my old age too. See you can teach an old dog new tricks. Hope you had a nice day, we did.

You'd be surprised what you can learn about "extra" virgin oils...very interesting. The natural oils are so useful for various factors in life, besides food consumption!
