Food Finds: San Giuliano freshly crushed unfiltered extra virgin olive oil

Considering how much I use at home, I’m always on the hunt for an olive oil that both tastes good and is affordable. More often than not, large bottles of olive oil are either prohibitively expensive or you wind up sacrificing quality for volume. Another problem is finding a multipurpose oil because, really, who wants to have to use three different bottles for each meal?

San Giuliano freshly crushed unfiltered extra virgin olive oil is not only a bargain at $16.99 for a 1-liter bottle, but you can use it for virtually everything: salad dressings, as a marinade, for sautéing, even for frying. The oil is made by the Manca family in Sardinia, Italy, which has been making multiple types of olive oil since 1916. Owner Dan Giuliano harvests the freshest Bosana, Frantoio, Leccino, Semidana and Coratina olives, then cold-presses them, a process that uses only pressure from granite millstones and preserves the integrity of the oil but reduces the amount of acidity in the end product. After the oil is cold-pressed, it isn’t filtered like many other oils, so it remains cloudy and relatively dense.
