Our Eureka Lemon olive oil is produced by pressing whole, fresh lemons together with early harvest, certified organic olives at the time of crush. Its light, refreshing flavor is just perfect to sauté shrimp or scallops or to drizzle on chicken or fish. Yet this versatile oil can also be used to bake sweets such as cookies, biscotti, cakes, and in granola. It’s fabulous in marinades, dressings on salads, vegetables, and more.
Pairings: pairs amazingly with the blueberry balsamic, raspberry balsamic, jalapeno white balsamic, apricot balsamic, fig balsamic, and pomegranate balsamic.
While many people have heard of infused olive oils, olive oils to which herbs, spices or fruit are added to, fused olive oils are not as common. The difference is that while adding flavor or foreign foods to an olive oil causes the oil to breakdown and become rancid (infused olive oils which are not used quickly develop a very undesirable flavor), fusing an olive oil by actually pressing the olives and fruit together simultaneously, creates a beautiful harmony that will not deteriorate the flavor profile of the oil. Our Blood Orange and Lemon are fused oils.
