The Flower of the Olive Oil
Oil from the crushed olives drips by gravity, strained through tiny holes, and runs out through a trough at the bottom to a separate decantation system.
What results is non-pressed Flor de Aceite. Normally, a pressing yields a kilo of oil for every five kilos of olives; however, it takes eleven kilos of olives to make one kilo of Flor de Aceite. It is a robust oil dominated by the Picual olive, with green olive fruitiness and a touch of green apple. Excellent for salads, finishing and sautéing.
