KEEPING OLIVE OIL FRESH
Heat and light are the enemies of oil, which should be kept in a cool, dark place.
Should extra virgin olive oil be refrigerated?
Typically, if you can keep oil in a cool pantry or even
a cellar, it will be fine for up to 2 years from harvest if unopened; well-kept oil may lose its bright flavors, but it won’t spoil too rapidly.
However, once opened, it should be used within 3 - 4 months.
Whatever you do with it, however, be generous.
Nothing is more exasperating than a salad dressed with two teaspoons of extra virgin.
Less is more sometimes, but not when it comes to good, fresh olive oil.
