crisco has olive oil!
Have you seen them in stores? Crisco has come out with olive oil now!
Crisco sent me each of their olive oils to try through Foodbuzz's Tastemaker program, and I've been busy over the past several weeks giving them a go. I admit, I'm not a connoisseur of olive oils. I don't go to olive oil tastings on a regular basis, nor do I know what the professionals look for in a good olive oil. I liked everything I made with these new olive oils, though, so I'd say they are winners when it comes to taste.
I'm also completely ignorant when it comes to the uses for olive oil. I've always known that there's more than one kind of olive oil (extra virgin, pure, etc.), but I never knew which to use with which dish. I'm one of those people who just used the same kind for everything and just hoped that the results would turn out positive. :-)
Well, no more! Crisco's olive oils do taste good, but the thing I love most about them is that they tell you...right on the bottle...what to use each oil for (see above picture). There's no more guesswork!
Here are a few of the things that I have made recently using Crisco's olive oils...
If you are olive oil ignorant like me, I encourage you to check out Crisco olive oils and let them take the guesswork out for you!
Disclaimer: I received 3 bottles of Crisco olive oil from Crisco, but the views represented in this post are my own.
