California Olive Ranch Extra Virgin Olive Oil - EVOO GIVEAWAY! {CLOSED}


Rachael Ray's abbreviation "EVOO" has made it into Webster's Dictionary. Just about any household with some culinary knowledge knows exactly what EVOO stands for:

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Through MomSelect, California Olive Ranch sent me a bottle of their high quality, fresh pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil.


California Olive Ranch cold presses their award winning 100% California grown olives within hours of picking for a fresher taste. Their distinct green bottle helps keep the premium extra virgin olive oil fresh longer.

A few interesting facts on why Olive Oil is a popular oil in cooking:

Olive oil is high in healthy monounsaturated fats.

It has a 10:1 ratio of fatty acids: 10% Omega-6 and 1% Omega-3 fatty acids.

Olive oil has 5mg of flavenoid polyphenols for every 10 grams of oil. These polyphenols are natural anti-oxidants that can prevent heart disease, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and reduce the overall effects of aging.

California is the only state to have legally adopted the international standards for olive oil. As a result, NOT all EVOO sold in the United States is the real thing. You can read more news, information, and recipes on California Olive Ranch's blog.

Want to BUY IT? Click here to see all of the products offered by California Olive Ranch. California Olive Ranch is also offering free shipping to my readers! Enter the code "MOMS" in the coupon code section during checkout! EVOO would make a fantastic addition to a foodie's Christmas basket!

GIVEAWAY ALERT!

I use a LOT of EVOO--in sauces, in bread dough, on bread slices ... The new recipe I'd like to try is Pumpkin Gnocchi with Parmesan and Sage.

I'd make the Pumpkin Gnocchi with Parmesan and Sage! I might modify it to make pumpkin ravioli instead, though.
