What Are the Different Types of Olive Oil?
Italian olive oil is one of the most common oils used in cooking and in recipes. Olives are washed and then crushed into a paste. The past is soaked in water and then a centrifuge is used to separate the oil and water from the soil pieces. After that, the water is removed leaving the oil behind.Â When you want to purchase olive oil from https://ninideluca.com/, it is helpful to know the different kinds of olive oil, so you can purchase the right one for your needs.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
This is considered to be the highest grade of olive oil. It comes from virgin olive oil production, which means no chemicals are used. Some think this type of olive oil has the best taste. It is 0.8 percent free acidity. This is perfect for use in salads as a dressing. It is light. Extra Virgin Olive Oil may look and taste different based on the brand.
Virgin Olive Oil
This olive oil is slightly less quality than that of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It has about 1.5 percent free acidity. It has a great mild flavor and it perfect for sautÃ©ing and frying and other low heat cooking. This is not a refined oil. It has a cold pressed extraction method. This allows a natural aroma and flavor. This type of oil is resistant to changes in temperature.
Refined Olive Oil
If you see a label that says pure olive oil or just olive oil, it is usually a refined olive oil. It is typically extracted from black and ripe olives. This is great for cooking, especially at high temperatures. You would not want to use this oil for anything other than cooking. It has the same calories and fat content as other types of olive oil.
Extra Light Olive Oil
This type of oil is a lighter oil, both in color and flavor. It is not any lower in calories or fat. This oil does not have much in the way of flavor. That makes this oil best for baking because the flavor, or lack thereof, has no impact on the flavor of the food.
Cold Pressed Olive Oil
Cold Pressed Olive Oil is pressed without heat, making the oil much richer in flavor. There is another type of cold pressed process that is called first called pressed which means it is part of the first press. This first pressed oil usually has a higher price and is superior to most other cold pressed olive oils.

No Fuss Ice Cream Curious Creamery
A few years back we bought a great blender, the Blendtec. This machine can make everything from daiquiris to soup, smoothies to ice cream. I have to say though, the ice cream is not like what you would eat from an ice cream maker. Let’s face it though, ice cream makers are a big fuss. The ingredients, the time, and of course the cleanup. If only there were a no fuss way to make ice cream at home with the same great flavor and quality ingredients of homemade ice cream.

National Shortbread Day Walkers Shortbread
Today, for instance, January 6th is National Shortbread Day, celebrate today with Walkers Shortbread. The holidays may be over but we still celebrate the little nuance holidays. While I had no idea today was National Shortbread day until I visited the Walkers Shortbread site, I could not help but share this adequately timed holiday to the receipt of my package of Walkers Shortbread cookies. Stories that a magical castle the bakers at Walkers created in honor of the show Outlander on Starz had graced my email as well, so this is how I stumbled upon this wonderful little nuance holiday. If you are a fan of Outlander (and shortbread) like myself you know how cool this castle was to build. Outlander returns to Starz this Sunday January 10th with new episodes.

Holidays and entertaining are always a stressful time. Keeping visitors and guests at bay for the chef, or cook, of the house is the goal until the meal is ready to be served. Feeding them plenty of hors dâ€™oeuvres and snacks helps divert traffic from your kitchen and allows for wonderful entertaining and mingling. One of my cheesiest and favorite snack items for Thanksgiving and Christmas is a proper cheeseball. Continue reading “Cheeseball Recipe”
