This is last year's olive oil. It is STILL WONDERFUL, and you can purchase with confidence!
PURE Olive oil is very stable and retains quality if kept in these proper conditions: cool, dark, and low air exposure. The light-blocking tin takes care of the dark and low oxygen requirements, so if it's kept in a cool place, it will be good for 5-6 years. We store the olive oil in our basement.
What's so great about Manetas OliveYards Olive Oil? Have you ever stood in a grocery store aisle looking at the shelves of olive oil and wondered which one to buy? Which one is actually worth the money? Here's the answer: Manetas OliveYards Olive Oil, but it's not available in your grocery store!
It is the REAL DEAL for your health! 1) No chemical additives or cheaper oils added to make it qualify for EVOO status or to make it cheaper to produce. (Are you tired of corporate deception, yet?!). 2) Produced from Koroneiki olives, the variety with the highest anti-oxidant levels. 3) The olives are hand-harvested from trees untreated by chemicals. 4) Single FAMILY ESTATE origin!

USING the olive oil: Our favorite way to use older olive oil is to cook vegetables in it or drizzle it in soups and stews just before bringing them to the table. See how simple it is to make SALAD DRESSING!? Mix 1/4 cup Olive Oil, 2-3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar or lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper (season to taste). With Manetas Olive Oil, this is delicious without anything more, although adding some fresh or dried herbs (like 1/2 t Oregano) is wonderful, too. ++
