Award-Winning Pure Broken Hill Olive Oil – BROKEN HILL GOURMET PRODUCTS


in stock SKU: N/A


**UPDATES** 1. Oil bottles are not included in our Express Post flat rate of $15.95 because the glass bottles are packed in cylinders. Please contact us before ordering so we can give you postal options for your area. 2. Due to a national stampede after the recent ABC article GROVE OIL is sold out until 2025! When you order, you will receive URBAN OIL (from local residential gardens), which is still good, pure olive oil - it is just not single source so flavours may vary.
3. During our hot, outback summers, oil is stored offsite and our Express Post delivery will take an extra 1-2 days.
As this oil is locally made in a co-op, almost all the proceeds go back into oil production. [Image credit: ABC Broken Hill, Lily McCure.]
Our review...So much flavour! Many olive oils contain fillers, such as vegetable oil, but the aroma from this oil is full and strong, unlike any oil we have ever tried...and we are European!   From Broken Hill Gourmet products... There is no doubting the health benefits of pure Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The rich fruity aroma, the green tint and traces of bitterness indicate high levels of health-promoting polyphenols in the Town Grove oil. In its first showing, the Urban Agriculture label earned a bronze medal at the Mudgee Olive show in 2007. The Town Grove received ‘Two Stars’ from The International Taste & Quality Institute in 2010. Both the Town Grove and the Urban Agriculture labels are produced from trees grown in the red soil of Broken Hill, giving them a stronger backbone of flavor. By comparison, Menindee is on a river-flat with a similar climate. The Menindee oil is lighter colored, more lemony tasting, and has a gentler aroma.
Handling All three oils are presented in dark glass 250mL bottles to retail customers. We hope this encourages them to be opened and used while fresh. Ten litre containers are available to wholesale customers such as restaurants who should serve the oil soon after opening, so that it is shown at its best. The care that has been taken to create this high quality product should be respected when handling it. These premium oils should be stored in a cool dry place, but not refrigerated. The high density of long-chain monounsaturated fats causes the oil to become solid at temperatures below 10 deg C: if this happens, warm it very gently until liquid again. Serving Although it is a delicious cooking ingredient, we recommend adding this oil sparingly at the last moment possible before serving. Moderate heat from fresh cooked food will release its fragrance without loosing the health promoting qualities. It also adds an exotic sense to fresh cold food such as salads and antipasto when lightly drizzled over. When used correctly and with a little experience, these oils will draw comments on the taste of the dishes which they accompany and add a warmth to the experience of a good meal.
