  • According to the olive oil book I read almost all supermarket olive oil sold as extra virgin is not extra virgin, but has been adulterated with other kinds of oils and deodorized to remove nasty odors and tastes. So you could get some real extra virgin olive oil: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007I6FA5O/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B007I6FA5O&linkCode=as2&tag=httpwwwchanco-20

  • I wonder if there are drunk driver stats out there for horse-drawn buggy accidents.

    Nasty??

    Yummy!

    Probably considered an acquired taste but worth acquiring. Especially if you have french bread or a baguette to dip into it.

    No wallflower, this is adulterated olive oil, that's cut with vegetable oil. They deodorize it to erase the stench and rotten flavor and sell it as pure olive oil.

    I've never had the real thing, which is supposedly an acquired taste.

    But the supermarket fake extra virgin olive oil does taste good. But it's usually not the real thing.

  • Oh ok. I thought you were referring to the bitter taste of purer olive oil as nasty. That's what's really good even if acquired. I don't like the tasteless supermarket stuff at all. We spring for the good stuff because we don't cook with it, we just use it for salads or bread or to "butter" veggies so we don't go through as much. I'd rather have less of a good thing than a lot of a lesser quality thing. Same goes for chocolate actually. I agree it's hard to pick through all the brands and find which are better quality.

    Some of the ways I'm able to tell if it's real olive oil or not is if it's thick, exudes what I'd call an "herbal" aroma, has a strong flavor, and (most importantly for me) it doesn't irritate my skin when I put it on my hands.
