Our Blood Orange Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made by pressing tree-ripened California 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, and grown herbicide and pesticide free!
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.
Harvest Date: Oct 2020 - Jan 2021

Excellent on a variety of foods - one of my favorites among favorites
I use it for my everyday salad dressing. Lettuce salad and veggies a few segments of blood orange. Sprinkle some Blood Orange oil and some balsamic vinegar and some feta or blue cheese.....YOU got a great salad.
I usually buy the lime, but tried blood orange. It is stellar! Ver good in salad dressing, marinating chicken. Great choice.
I like all the oils I have tried but this orange one is my favorite. We use it to make a nice waffle mix, we use this to make friench toast and also use it on chicken as well. Lovely flavor with multiple uses. Highly recommended.
The blood orange oil is the greatest! I use it almost exclusively for roasting carrots and yams/sweet potatoes. Add a drizzle of honey and a shake of cayenne pepper, and you have the perfect side dish.
