Before my trip to Stillwater, Minnesota I had never been to an olive oil tasting room. In fact, I’m embarrassed to admit that I didn’t even realize they existed.
As serendipity would have it, we managed to stumble our way into the Stillwater Olive Oil Company on a cold, rainy day and sampled oils and vinegars to our hearts content.
My favorite tastes were the sweet, fruity balsamic vinegars.
I loved the fig and the dark chocolate.
And especially took to the white coconut balsamic vinegar. Truthfully, I’ve been dreaming about the coconut balsamic vinegar since October.
I considered ordering it online, but after doing a little research I found that Boston has it’s own olive oil company stocked with extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars in all colors and flavors.
Mom, Dad – on our way to Mike’s Pastry we’ll have to stop at the olive oil company – if I can wait until the holidays!
Have you dove into the world of flavored oils and vinegars?
