A visit to an Olive Oil shop

On a recent visit to Vermont to visit our daughter and her family, we spent a lovely afternoon browsing the shops in Burlington.  We stopped in the newest shop which is the Saratoga Olive Oil Co.  Olive oil from Saratoga New York???  Yes indeed.  

Saratoga Olive Oil Company is a family business owned and operated by Clint Braidwood, Barbara Braidwood and Chad Braidwood. Their goal is to provide the consumer with the freshest Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the world. They  follow the olive crush in the northern and southern hemispheres "to provide the consumer with the most recently produced and healthiest oils available anywhere."

After tasting our way through half a dozen different oils and vinegars, I ended up with a lemon infused olive oil and fig balsamic vinegar - it was a real toss up between that and the chocolate balsamic!  I have already used the oil to roast asparagus - delicious! I also plan to use it to toss with spaghetti and black pepper.  I think the fig balsamic will go well with pork but the crostini recipe at the company’s website sounds really great.

Check this company out - they do mail order.
