Extra Virgin Olive Oil
If possible, choose oils from that have the year of harvest on the label. Ideally the label should also include the date of pressing. Many oils have a “best before” date, but this is not altogether helpful.
The colour of the oil is influenced by the degree of ripeness of the fruit when pressed, and also by the cultivar. Usually greener fruit produces a greener coloured oil. So don’t let the colour of the oil influence your choice to much, although oil from a riper fruit (a pale golden colour) generally has a milder flavour. EVOO is sold in 375ml bottles, but bulk sales are also done. Prices are available on request.
