We have two bottles of really tasty flavored oils (one is jalapeño olive oil and the other is olio piccante, some sort of spicy Italian oil) and we're looking for ideas on what to do with them. They don't heat well (the flavors dissipate quite a bit), so we're looking for suggestions on what to do with them. We like to drizzle them on soups right before serving and over hummus. Any other great ideas?
I have a huge, life-determining standardized test tomorrow. A bit of ear plug got stuck inside my ear this morning when half of it ripped out as I tried to remove my earplug. Now, my ear has started hurting a little, and I'm terrified! I'm highly prone to ear infections, and am fearful of waking up with one tomorrow. It would be a huge distraction during this 3 hour test that has required months of preparation! [more inside]
I have an old Spanish olive oil label. The printer's name/location, as they appear in fine print at the bottom the label, are as follows: ARTES GRAFICAS - DEL RIO - LUARCA. I am trying to determine the age of this label. Herminio Azcárate Campo died in 1944, but I don't know when he inherited his father's business, which was established sometime after 1891. The label can be viewed here. If I knew when this printer was in operation, I could get a better idea of when this label was in use. Any useful information on ARTES GRAFICAS - DEL RIO or Herminio Azcárate Campo would be appreciated.
I have an antique olive oil label, probably from France, that I suspect was printed in the early or very early 1900s. It reads as follows: "L'Aiglon Marque déposée Huile d’olive vierge extra douce Superfine Poids net 800 Gs". The printer's name is not indicated, nor is the name of the company. I would like to know when this brand name of olive oil was in use.
Is there any simple way to know if the olive oil I've bought is genuine? If my olive oil does not soldify in the fridge, does that mean it is adulterated? What brand (or certification) can I buy of olive oil that I know for sure is genuine? [more inside]
