HOW TO USE VIRGIN OLIVE OIL FOR COOKING:

 

Virgin Olive Oil preserves all the original smell and flavour of fresh fruit juices, in salads, in sauces or in dressing for vegetables. It can be sprinkled on bread or toast and also on smoked fish or meats, and to accompany olives, sandwiches, or cold meat dishes.

When fried lightly or in stews cooked at moderate temperatures, virgin olive oil keeps all its properties, especially when using it with legumes and vegetables.

In fried and roasted food, Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the most stable of all vegetable oils, and it does not produce toxic reactions when fried, roasted or cooked. Indeed, Extra Virgin Olive Oil improves the gastronomic qualities of food. When frying, a thin consistent layer is formed around the product. This layer hampers the absorption of unnecessary oil and it allows the retention of all the food’s flavour and juices. Olive oil fries and does not cook, as other types of oil do.

How to dress a salad. When dressing salad it is very important to add first the salt, then the vinegar or lemon juice, and finally the oil. The olive oil covers all the ingredients of the salad with a thin layer, preventing other elements of the dressing from penetrating them. This is the reason why the olive oil should be added last.

  SOAP RECIPE:


 This is a recipe for making soap, handed down from generation to generation in our family. The recipe is based on olive oil, and it can be used for daily personal hygiene, especially for those people who react badly to industrial soap, as well as for cleaning difficult stains in clothes.

  INGREDIENTS:

· 1 litre of olive oil
· 2 liters of water
· 400 grs of caustic soda (sold in stores selling cleaning materials)
· 150 grs. of pine resin (sold in stores selling cleaning materials)

  INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING THE SOAP:

  The night before, mix all the ingredients in a container or pan (to be used exclusively for this purpose). Some of the ingredients may damage certain materials.

  The next day, when you are ready to make the soap, add another 400 cc of water and heat the mixture over a medium flame, stirring constantly.
To see if the paste is ready we have to take a look at its texture checking that there are no lumps and that it has the consistency of custard.

When we think that the paste is ready, take it off the heat, and put the paste in a prepared wooden or metal box covered with paper on the inside. Leave it there for two days, and then you can cut the soap into pieces.

NOTE: If you want that the soap leaves but white you can add a blanqueante product, like a spurt of indigo; so that it smells well is possible to be added some essence (lemon, mills), as well as some colorante if we wished color.
