Like the highly prized Italian blood orange, this olive oil has a full-bodied sweetness with a twinge of tanginess, making it one of our most unique--and surprisingly versatile--varieties.
Italians use blood oranges in much of their cooking, so this oil works naturally with traditional Mediterranean dishes, adding rich sweetness to pastas, salads, and red sauces. However, it's also great for baking, imparting a hint of citrus to sugar cookies, oatmeal cookies, pound cake, and blood orange brownies. Use it on its own or pair with some of our fruitier balsamics, like tangerine, strawberry, or white peach, for bright, refreshing vinaigrettes. We think it's great on a chicken panini with red bell pepper!
