They are harvested during late November to January, producing a dark green, olive flavoured, aromatic olive oil with a slight peppery and bitter after taste. Fantastic for salads, dipping and cooking…yes you can cook with good quality olive oil.

Here are some points of interest from independent sources and individuals.
The Mediterranean diet, as described by The Mayo Clinic, consists primarily of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and nuts. In the diet, butter is replaced with healthy fats such as olive oil, and flavoring is done with herbs and spices instead of salt. Red meat consumption should be limited to a few times a month while fish and poultry is consumed at least twice a week. Drinking red wine in moderation also is beneficial.
According to researchers, consumption of extra-virgin olive oil protects memory and learning ability and reduces the formation of amyloid-beta plaque and neurofibrillary tangles in the brain, both classic Alzheimer’s hallmarks.
