Our Mission Variety varietal olive oil has a lush buttery flavor, with a delicate underlying touch of sweetness and subtle notes of olive blossoms. Artisan-crafted from sun-ripened black olives, this brilliant golden oil is superb as a heart-healthy butter replacement, and enhances the flavor of pastry and cake preparation. Try using it with a touch of sea salt for buttery-flavored popcorn – without the butter!
Why is Mission Variety Olive Oil the single most “buttery” extra virgin olive oil on the market? Fully ripe Mission olives, the only native California variety, result in delicate, sweet flavors without the bitterness or pungency of the not-as-ripe early harvest. Only Mission variety olives have fully adapted to the California climate (many trees are well over 100 years old) allowing the olives to remain on the tree for several months after most producers have completed their crush – becoming ever riper and sweeter.
