Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegar


Colwell mandarin and lemon crushed olive oils are 100% natural, cold pressed and unfiltered. They combine the rich and authentic flavor of fresh citrus with the smooth and enticing taste of mild mission olives. This rocess captures both the sweetness of the fruit and the delicate oils from the rind, and combines it with the orchard fresh, savory, and mild taste of recently harvested mission olives.

These richly flavorful citrus oils are excellent for both dipping and cooking a variety of fish including salmon, shrimp and halibut; meats – chicken, pork, and beef; or vegetables. They can add a subtle citrus "zest" to familiar recipes. When combined with our balsamic vinegar, these fresh flavors add a delicious taste to salads, sauces, and marinades. Colwell mandarin and lemon olive oils are also highly regarded for finishing oils. (Click for recipes)
