Agrumato - Citrus Olive Oils



AGRUMATO® is produced by using only olives and citrus strictly free from harmful substances and carefully selected for ripeness and flavor. The two ingredients are crushed simultaneously between granite stones in a traditional mill. When the resulting paste has obtained the right density the AGRUMATO® is extracted through high-speed centrifugation. In the region of Abruzzo and many parts of Southern Italy, olive farmers have traditionally created citrus oils for family and friends but was kept always at home for personal use, never sold. Olive mills and presses were often cleaned and refreshed at the end of the season by combing whole citrus fruit with the olives and crushed together. This oil was only used as a table top condiment, and never for cooking.
