Cooking with Ultra Premium Olive Oil

Imagine the possibilities

Try using one of our fused or infused oils to instantly transform a simple dish into a palatte pleasing delight! Drizzle lemon fused oil over asparagus or fish. Tuscan Herb over pasta or chicken, Mushroom-Sage over roasted brussel sprouts or turkey or use butter infused oil on mashed potatoes or even popcorn! The possibilities are endless.

Cooking with Newburyport Olive Oil

Due to the low levels of free fatty acids (FFA's) the smoke point of our EVOO's is much higher than most commercially available olive oils. So in addition to salad dressings, bread dipping and baking, our oils are great for marinades, sauteing, roasting and grilling.
