Fused and Infused Olive Oils

Infused olive oil is olive oil that has been flavor enhanced with natural seasonings. Infused oils can add a tasty flair to dishes that are sautéed, fried or drizzled over food of your choice. 

Fused olive oil, also known as agrumato in Italy, is made by crushing ripe olives with whole fresh fruits, herbs or vegetables. For example, in the winter, citrus fruit is picked at the peak of ripeness, split in half and then thrown in with the olives. The olives and fruit are then crushed simultaneously. This process allows the essential oils from the citrus peel to mingle with the oil from the olives.
