Olive oil is supposed to be good for you but, it doe's not taste very nice, so i tried warming some up with flavourings (herbs and spices) so far the best tasting one is mint, let it cool first, what do you think?
Deep fried Mars bar drizzled with extra virgin olive oil?Or, one could simply add olive oil to something they are eating....
That could be a big part of it. There is a lot of junk masquerading as cold pressed/first pressed olive oil. If it's cheap, it's not real - that's the too-good-to-be-true rule in effect.My cold pressed olive oil tastes like olives. Perhaps you are using a less fragrant olive oil?
English!I hate olives they are worse than fish eggs (caviar) or Indian pickles.
Do you not make much pasta? I always use fresh garlic and olive oil to get the pan primed for any italian pasta sauce I use. Then drizzle a bit of olive oil over the pasta itself. This seems to 'seal up' the noodles so they don't absorb as much moisture from the sauce and maintain their consistency. It also keeps left overs from drying up as much.
I don't know how much "good stuff" is left by the time the processor gets around to resorting to heat extraction. Such oil can be called "Pure", but it is certainly not comparable in flavor to Virgin or Extra-Vrigin, so I suspect some of the nutrients and other good stuff that were extracted with the cold-pressed oil is present in smaller quantities in the heat-extracted oils.You hit the nail on the head Turbo, good olive oil (tasty) is expensive, but i suppose there is the same goodness in the cheap stuff, so flavouring it is worth while?
For a moment, I wondered the same thing, or that it might be about benefits of drinking motor oil. :yuck:When I first read the thread title, I was certain that Wolram had ingested motor oil by mistake.
