Origins of Balsamic Vinegar in Vancouver, BC

Posted by on Aug 18, 2014 in Uncategorized |

Origins of Balsamic Vinegar in Vancouver, BC The balsamic vinegar originated in Italy. Similar to wine, it is made with grapes and then left to ferment for either twelve or twenty-five years. Its popularity began when the Roman Emperor Henry III was given a bottle of balsamic vinegar in 1024. Now it has become popular and available in markets all over the world. Time is an important element in making balsamic vinegar. The grape must used to make balsamic vinegar is fermented in wooden barrels which add to the flavour over time. The minimum amount of years required to ferment balsamic vinegar is twelve years—quite a long time, especially when it is highly on demand all over the world. To accommodate the high global demands, commercialized balsamic vinegars are made. These have other ingredients that quicken the fermentation processes and infusion of flavours, so they can be sold in less than twelve years. Artisan balsamic vinegar, of course, is the best, but it is made mostly in Italy. Where to get balsamic vinegar in Vancouver?

What Makes An Olive Oil Stand Out from the Competition?

Posted by on Jul 29, 2014 in Benefits of Olive Oil |

What Makes an Olive Oil Stand Out from the Competition? Olive oil is loved by people across the world. It has been famous for centuries not just as a cooking ingredient that enhances the flavour of other foods but also for its health benefits. As a cooking ingredient, olive oil adds exotic taste to otherwise ordinary food while also contributing to health and preventing certain diseases. Olives used to produce olive oil grow only in warm climates and undergo a meticulous process. This means that even with advanced technology, it still cannot be produced in countries with cold climates. Despite this, however, it continues to be demanded by people everywhere, making it a highly imported product. Nowadays, the many types and flavours of olive oil are available even in places with colder climates like Vancouver. This, unfortunately, comes with a price. Countries that do not produce olive oil are susceptible to acquiring low quality olive oil. In fact, there have been issues lately regarding the authenticity of olive oil products sold all over the world. The best way to really tell the quality of olive oil is through its taste and aroma. Olive oil made from freshly harvested olives taste like the fruit, with a little bit of bitter and peppery taste. Low quality olive oil is stale especially when compared with authentic, high quality olive oil. It does not contribute anything to the taste of food at all. High quality olive oil retains the fruity taste of olives. This is only possible when freshly harvested olives are physically, rather than chemically, processed immediately to extract the oil. This is why Coastal Olive Oils carefully selects their suppliers to ensure that they bring only the highest quality olive oil in Vancouver. Aside from providing the highest quality olive oil in Vancouver, our Delta based Olive Oil Company provides a wide variety of flavours.
