Basil Olive Oil
We spent many months looking for the olive oil sisters to our balsamic vinegars. Bulk oil won't do...you never know where it comes from anymore. And why copy the franchise shops with oils full of extracts if we could find a source for oil made like we make our balsamic infusions? With real ingredients, not extracts.
This basil oil from a small mill out west smells exactly like the basil we grow in the gardens here at Clean Slate Farm. Why? Because the basil is crushed along with the olives to impart the sweet, slightly minty fragrance right into the oil.
There is a Sufi proverb, which says, "Forgiveness is the fragrance the flower gives when crushed." You'll be forgiven for wanting to put it on everything in sight. However, it's best used as a finishing oil for your salads, drizzled on hot pasta, or over a caprese salad of fresh tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and smattering of garlic balsamic vinegar.
