Graza Olive Oil
Every kitchen deserves good, fresh olive oil that’s affordable enough to be used every day. Our single origin oils do just that, and they come in a squeezy bottle that makes everything easier and more fun. Most olive oil in the U.S. is blended from old, low quality oils. But across the ocean, people are using fresh, never-blended olive oil by the gallon. Graza is that olive oil. We're made from 100% Picual olives from Jaen, Spain, the region where over half the world’s olive oil is produced. As pretty as our farms are, at the end of the day we’re here because of our love for cooking and our firm belief that everything tastes better when there's olive oil involved.
SIZZLE: Before you say “evoo isn’t for cooking,” read this: thanks to the super stable picual olive, sizzle was born for the heat. It’s still 100% extra-virgin, but made with mid-harvest olives that give it a more mellow flavor.
Sizzle is a peak harvest extra virgin olive oil. What exactly does that mean? The harvest season in Spain goes from October to January. Sizzle is harvested between the end of November until the beginning of Jan, when the olives are at their most ripe. They've grown bigger, jucier, and have turned dark green or purple. When pressed, these plump olives yield much more oil than during the early harvest. That oil is much more mellow, but still packed with flavor.
If you would put it in or on top of an oven, use Sizzle. Chicken Cutlets, Sheet Pan Veggies, Fried Rice, or even Chocolate Chip Cookies! You name it, Sizzle sizzles it.
DRIZZLE: Like a sprinkle of flaky salt or the squeeze of a good condiment, drizzle adds a big pop of flavor right before you dig in (That’s why it’s called a finishing oil!).
Drizzle is an early harvest extra virgin olive oil. What exactly does that mean? The harvest season in Spain goes from October to January. Drizzle is harvested in the first 2 weeks of October, when the olives are very small, very hard, and very green. When pressed, these tiny hard olives yield a very small amount of oil. That oil is super concentrated and packed with flavor, which is why we recommend eating it raw.
A little Drizzle goes a long way! Use it on and around things like ice cream, pesto, popcorn, salads, sandwiches or even directly on your tongue (we won’t tell).
