A buttery-sweet delight!

Sweet Mission 'Olio Nuovo' has a delicate underlying touch of sweetness and subtle notes of olive blossoms; it’s like tasting sunshine in a bottle. Superb as a heart-healthy butter replacement – try using it with a touch of sea salt for buttery-flavored popcorn – without the butter! 

What makes it so special? Sciabica’s olives are carefully harvested at different points of ripeness for superb "dialed-in" flavors. The riper the fruit, the sweeter the oil.  Fully ripe 'late harvest' olives result in delicate, sweet flavors without the bitterness or pungency of the ‘early’ harvest olives.

Why are the Sciabica's the only one with such sweet EVOO? Mission variety olives are the only variety native to California, and only Mission olives have fully adapted to the California climate (many trees are well over 100 years old) allowing the olives to remain on the tree for several months after most producers have completed their harvest – becoming ever riper and sweeter.  Very few olive oil millers harvest Mission olives – it's a time-consuming and expensive process – however, the Sciabica Family has quite literally built the company around these native California beauties.
