For a moment, I wondered the same thing, or that it might be about benefits of drinking motor oil. :yuck:

Disclaimer: Do not drink motor oil or any other petroleum product, just in case someone is contemplating doing so.


I think wolram is suffering from overexposure to tribdog. :biggrin:

Please refer to my previous post in which I recommend ways to enjoy olive oil.

My last post before this one is simply a precaution for those who may not distinguish between edible oils and non-edible oils.


When I worked in a refinery, we received tank cars with special designations which distinguished 'edible' from 'non-edible' products, e.g. 'EDIBLE TALLOW' as opposed to 'NON-EDIBLE TALLOW'.

A nice dollop of extra virgin olive oil is an essential ingredient of my patent-pending super-power breakfast drink--which I have just about every work day. Yum!

Pasta is squidgy horrible stuff, the nearest to that i will eat is Chineese noodles, pasta all ways reminds me of under cooked pastry.
You English people are crazy! ;-p

As far as flavours to try I am personally quite partial to rosemary. Rosemary and garlic (another food item that is supposed to have health benefits) may work maybe along with some other herbs. Astro's suggestion of making a garlic spread for toast sounds really good to me.

Well the Virginians gave us tatters so we Brits thought we should eat them, and i must thank the ancient Virginals for the use of my tatters.

I know many people that will simply take a shot of olive oil just because they like the taste. I do it all the time too with olive oils infused w/ herbs.

I guess it really isn't that much different than people who drink tablespoons cod liver oil except for the fact that olive oil probably tastes 10x's better.

The fats are slightly different and the vitamins very different between fish and olive oil.
Not sure how much olive oil is actually good for you - as opposed to not as bad as other oils in cooking.
