Our Blood Orange extra virgin olive oil is made by pressing tree-ripened blood oranges together with late, fully ripe black olives, a process which captures the sweetness of the fruit and delicate oils from the rind. As always, our olive oils are all first- and cold-pressed.
Bursting with fresh flavor, this oil pairs well with salmon, arugula, winter squashes, sweet potatoes, carrots, mint, sautéed greens, in a fennel salad with or without avocado, duck a la orange, chocolate, lobster or other shellfish. Blood Orange Oil makes a gorgeous vinaigrette, or is beautiful with sweet potatoes and carrots! An incomparable treat.

*Please note that our Blood Orange oil, like all of our oils, is not filtered, and so is sometimes cloudy, especially in the beginning of the year. All oils will eventually settle out and become clear. If your oil is cloudy, know that there is nothing wrong with it, it is an all-natural, unprocessed product. Filtering robs oils of texture and flavor, and we prefer a natural product. Try it, you'll love it!
