Balsamic Vinegar - From Minnesota?! - luvnit - 01-16-2011

Well, perhaps Minnesota is coming up in the world of food. Recently I found out about The Olive Grove Olive Oil Company here in Minnesota. They make a wonderful line of flavored Balsamic Vinegars ranging from Pomegranate, Red Apple, Black Cherry, Strawberry and Premium White to a Traditional 18-Year Aged that is so smooth you could drink like wine.

And, their olive oils. Poured from Italian stainless steel containers called fustis, you will taste a variety of extra virgin olive oils including Garlic, Basil, Tuscan Herb, Chipotle, Meyer Lemon, Blood Orange, Persian Lime, Picudo, Hojiblanca and many more. All of our oils are first cold-pressed.

Here is there website in case anyone is interested:

The Olive Grove Olive Oil Company

They also carry an assortment of truffle oils, gourmet mustards, Italian pastas, sauces, stuffed olives, sea salts, peppercorns, ceramics, hand creams, skin moisturizers and soaps.

Looks like I will be making a trip to this place as soon as I have some $$.

Under the Recipes tab, check out their pairings for salad dressings! Amazing!

BARBARA!!!! Laura needs to get my name next year! Doesn't that Black Cherry sound delicious? Off to check out the site. Thanks Laura, I think.

Just took a quick look - doesn't this sound good. I think I did something like this not too long ago.
Creamy Goat Cheese Pesto

2 c Packed fresh basil leaves
1/2 c The Olive Grove’s Garlic Olive Oil
1/2 c Grated parmesan cheese
8 oz Fresh goat cheese
1/2 tsp salt

Put the goat cheese, basil, garlic olive oil, parmesan and salt in a food processor or blender and process to a smooth paste.
Serve immediately as a dip, spread or serve over hot pasta.
