Oro del Desierto Varietals olive oil

Extra virgin olive oil Oro del Desierto Varietals, from olives harvested at the end of October and the beginning of November. These come from the varieties Arbequina, Hojiblanca, Picual and Lechín. Our olive grove has the luck and privilege of being virtually in the desert.

olive grove oro del desierto evooIt is the driest area of ​​Spain, which helps us a lot to control pests. For example, we almost do not have Olive Fly.

With so much dryness it does not favor its reproduction and prefers to go to more humid olive groves.

This brings another benefit and that is that we do not need to use chemical compounds to fight against these pests.

Therefore we reduce costs and do not alter the original taste of the oil.

The key to success in achieving maximum quality is to take maximum care of all the steps of the process, there are no shortcuts.


How to store our Extra Virgin olive oil

Keep your Oro del Desierto in a dark place, (ultraviolet rays can break down an olive oil over time), away from the stove and other heat producers. The reason is that EVOO exposed to warm temperatures will begin to oxidize and eventually turn rancid.

Also, you can put the remaining oil in the refrigerator, but it will solidify and turn cloudy at cold temperatures, but that does not alter the health benefits or nutritional value. Once bottled, olive oil has an 18-24 month shelf life and should be used up within six months of opening. We recommend using up the oil within 30 to 60 days upon opening.

A ceramic cruet is especially good for storing olive oil because it not only blocks out light and air, but the thick ceramic walls help block out heat too. However, if you’re going to use a cruet, you have to wash it throughly before you refill it each time.

Otherwise you’ll be mixing older oil in with your fresh oil, which will of course affect the oil’s taste.
