Olive oil has long been known to have anti-inflammatory effects and is believed to improve the function of the immune system. It contains monounsaturated oleic acid, which may help lower bad cholesterol levels and raise good HDLcholesterol levels. And while rich in health benefits, olive oil is also a very versatile ingredient in any kitchen.
And by infusing extra virgin olive oil with other ingredients, plain olive oil can be made even better. Flavor Infused extra virgin Olive Oils have a wide variety of culinary uses such as in marinades, dressings, sauces, and as a finishing touch on cooked dishes. Infused olive oils add an extra touch of flavor, all while retaining the health benefits of the olive oil.
So, step beyond plain olive oil, and indulge in the many flavor varieties of infused olive oils . . . because life is better with a little flavor!
- Spice Things Up
Variety, they say, is the spice of life. And some varieties of infused olive oil from Sonoma Farm can indeed add a little spice, such as the Jalapeño Infused Olive Oil, or the Hot Pepper Infused Olive Oil. Try them as a dipping sauce with a few slices of sourdough at dinner for a little extra kick. Or use them in a chipotle chicken salad, or any other dish where you want a little extra zing.
- Taste the Quality
The olive oils that one usually finds at the grocery store are often created in large quantities by industrial processes geared more toward speed than flavor. But at Sonoma Farm each of our products is made in small batches to ensure the best quality olive oils with the best possible flavor.
- Upgrade Ice Cream
Whatever ice cream flavor is your favorite, one thing is for certain – ice cream is always better with the right toppings, and not just sprinkles. The next time you’re in the mood for a frozen treat, dress it up with some shaved almonds, a dash of sea salt, and a drizzle of an infused olive oil. Try rosemary olive oil, for instance, or blood orange olive oil to add a delicious extra note to your dessert.
- Liven Up Old Recipes
Do you have a classic vinaigrette or focaccia you’ve been making for ages? Well, a flavor infused olive oil can add bit of new flavor and variety to reboot that classic into something new. Do you want to a new spin on your regular salad dressing? Use an infused olive oil to add new flavors without compromising on healthy eating.
