From Queen Creek Olive Mill, I received three bottles of their Olive Oil's. The company comes from the Valley of the sun, Arizona. The couple Perry and Brenda Rea are the proud owners of Queen Creek Olive Mill, and are producing great products, since,1998 until the present time.
For the salad, I used the bottle of Queen Creek Olive Mill balance oil. It went on a tossed salad that I made, directly from the bottle, then added a few teaspoons of wine vinegar also. The olive oil is what stood out the most. Giving the salad a hint of olive taste without the presence of olives. It wasn't over powering at all. The way this Extra Virgin Oil is made is by being cold pressed. Made with fresh olives, and giving you a fruity peppery taste. Very Good!
Next I used the bottle of Robust Oil for a dipping sauce with Italian bread. Into the dip was some mixed herbs and the oil. This olive oil like all the others at Queen Creek are cold pressed. The olives are harvested early, thus producing a flavor of grass, artichoke, and green apple and a peppery flare. Which makes it perfect for what I was using it for.
Last up was the delicate olive oil, and this I used for pasta. The sauce for the pasta was made with the olive oil, salt and pepper, and minced fine garlic, with a spoonful of red pepper flakes. The milled olive oil gave the pasta a very fresh taste. It was mellow yet bold. The overtones of the oil we're buttery, and fruity at the same time. The olives used for this oil came from, fresh olives that we're harvested late, and we're ripe when picked.
Queen Creek Olive Mill not only makes these fine tasting olive oils, but other great products as well. If you would like to find out more, please visit their website, or even their store if you are in the area. You'll truly be delighted with the products.
