What if we told you that we had the elixir of eternal youth – would you believe us? Well, OK, perhaps not an ‘elixir’ per se, but what we do have is the best diet in the world: the Mediterranean Diet, and along with it, its unconditional love, Olive Oils from Spain.
Do you dream about getting home and finding dinner all ready for you? Or taking less time to prepare a delicious meal than it does to eat it? Then pay attention to this post because we’ve got a fantastic solution for you. What’s that???!!! Very simple: preserve your food in Olive Oil. Once your friends have tried it, they’ll all want to do it. So take note!
“The amphoras of Baetica oil are the most abundant or most common in all of the Western Roman Empire. Amphoras appear throughout all of Britain, in Wales, as well as in Belgium and Germany and even Switzerland. They were also transported to Alexandria, Egypt, a distribution port which in turn shipped the oil to places as remote as Arikamedu, on the Eastern coast of India.” Thus, amphoras containing oil from the banks of the Guadalquivir River in Andalusia traveled 8,000 kilometers to India two millennia ago!
Spain exports its olive oils to more than 170 countries around the world. Considering that there are just over 190 countries existing today, we can say with confidence that you can find Spanish Olive Oil in practically any corner of the globe.
