EVOO in AUSTIN

Superman took me to the Travis County Farmers Market on Wednesday evening. It was very HOT there, not too many people. The veggies were very photogenic – I love this “Squash People” pose!

 


I discovered Sola Stella Extra-Virgin Olive Oil from the Texas Hill Country Olive Co.I’ve heard before that Austin/Hill Country is just about perfect for growing/producing olive oil… that must be right! cuz this evoo is really good.I know there are some great wines produced around here, now award winning olive oil… Go Austin!

From the olive co site:  July 10th, 2010)—Texas Hill Country Olive Company, a two-year old orchard located in Dripping Springs, took home silver and bronze medals at the 2010 Los Angeles International Olive Oil Competition.  Texas Hill Country Olive Company entered the competition after receiving so much encouragement from their customers on the taste and quality of their oil.

I made a delish Caprese Salad with the oil and tomatoes we bought…
