Pepper and Potato Frittata | Olive Branch Stores Olive Oil Store Winston Salem NC | EVOO | Scoop.it

The combination might sound boring, but it isn’t. “Art of Eating” editor Edward Behr learned it from Lucy Dinapoli, whose mother came from Catania, Sicily. He cooked the frittata in a heavy, well-seasoned 10-inch cast-iron skillet, with a lid borrowed from another pot.

 

You’ll notice that Behr calls for “excellent, fresh-tasting olive oil” here; for best results, try to use oil that was harvested this fall season. We found a nice Italian brand at Dean & Deluca.

Tour an olive orchard and mill – and taste the oils - Napa Valley Register

Soon after Napa Valley grapes are harvested, it's time to pick the olives.

 

Although Napa Valley is known for its grapevines, it's also full of olive trees. The climate is perfect for the long-lasting trees, and they keep their leaves during the winter to provide color as well.


Many wineries in Napa Valley also maintain olive trees, either a few as landscaping, or whole orchards.

 

Olives are harvested after the grape harvest, making them complementary for growers who can use the same workers.

La Raccolta delle Olive - ItalianNotebook.com | EVOO | Scoop.it

The raccolta delle olive begins as soon as the sun has warmed the trees and dried off any dew that has collected over night. Wet olives should not be picked – they mold in their cassette (crates) before they can be taken to the frantoio (mill) for pressing. A large net is laid on the ground under each tree to catch the olives as they are ‘raked’ from the branches.
