Extra Virgin Olive Oil Infused with Lemon
The lemon “Agrumato Oil” is one of the most antique culinary traditions of Abruzzo, the greenest region located on the middle of Italy near the Adriatic Sea, into the South Europenan Park, the biggest of Europe. For many years, families who owned a “Frantoio” (olive mill to make olive oil) have produced a small quantity of “Agrumato Oil” for their own use and for close friends. To make “Agrumato Oil” one needs to understand and be a part of this tradition. The process is very tedious and labour-intensive. The olives are harvested entirely by hand and the organically-grown lemons are carefully picked at the perfect point of ripeness. These olives and lemons are then crushed together in a traditional granite mill used for making extra virgin olive oil. The resulting paste is immediately pressed with a low-pressure machine over a long period of time to extract the “Agrumato Oil”; a very rare and precious extra virgin olive oil.
