Gearing up for Summer in Italy and Olive Harvest 2018

Looking forward to heading it Italy in only a couple short weeks to spend the entire month of July there.  There has been so many updates at Villa la Castagnola di Borio. anwordpress post 3d the olive farm at Vico del Gargano in Puglia, Italy.   The olive farm is just about ready for summer.   The smell of the Adriatic Sea in the air and the quiet hills of Vico del Gargano bring me such calm and peaceful feelings.

 

 

The new wood fence going up and clean up at the farm ensures a wonderful 2018 olive harvest.

The spring has brought green trees which will be bountiful for a fall olive harvest.

Olive Farm in Vico del Gargano

Italy Panoramic Picture

Take in the sights of our beautiful olive farm in Vico del Gargano, Italy. Pictured is Joe Borio’s gorgeous olive grove, Villa la Castagnola di Borio. These ancient  olive trees and grove are  the home Vito & Joe’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  In order to bring you the highest quality extra virgin olive oil our olives are harvested at the peak time of harvest, and are cold pressed within hours of picking. Ensuring you the highest quality extra virgin olive oil that we ship to your home.

It’s truly a “Trip to Italy In A Bottle.”

 


Wonderful Weather For Risotto

Snowy and cold here in Upstate New York…snow falling in Italy. What else to make but some Risotto

Using Arborio Rice, Vito & Joe’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil, garlic, onions and white wine Risotto is a great appetizer or served as a side dish to your favorite fish, chicken or steak meal.

Arborio Rice I like to use Arborio Rice for Risotto as it is not as starchy as other types of rice available and it is also a shorter grain rice. Some people will recommend Carnaroli rice but I prefer Arborio Rice. You will first heat your Vito & Joe’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil, onions and garlic; followed by your rice to toast the rice. Once the rice is toasted a nice cup of white wine is added for flavor.

 

Chicken or Vegetable stock will then get slowly until its absorbed into the rice, and rice is nice and creamy.

 

For a final touch finish off with unsalted butter and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

 

Immediately serve on a flat dish or shallow plate and garnish with fresh sprig of parsley.

 

 

Full detailed and printable recipe is coming later this week! Be sure to check back all week for more updates to the recipes, and find out more information about our olive oil and how it is made!
