I’m in for the Elite selection and several sausages and cheezes. This is a slippery slope I fear I will be returning before BD11. If anyone deserves our support this year it is Nola, thanks so much for the offerings.

Nola I noticed on checkout that you have a pickup option. Do you have a physical location in Dayton? I have family in the area and I am a Class of 79 UD grad.
My warehouse is in Beavercreek and I do have customers that ask to pick up locally. If you come into town let me know!!

Looking at some of the gourmet items and they are labeled unavailable. And prices are not always per your message. What's the procedure, Nola?

Order in. I give many of the items out to my hardworking staff. Last year the tuna, sardines and Sherry vinegar were a big hit. This year added EVOO and some of the new seafood items Of course I keep a few for myself.
Cheers,

In for a 6-pack of the '19 EVOO and some tuna. Looking forward to trying it! How long will the EVOO last? I'm a little concerned about my wife and me being able to get through 6 bottles. Although I'm sure once I taste it, it won't be an issue! TIA.

Hi Scott. My Olive oil has a very long shelf life. I am personally using an older harvest from 2016 that had to older clear bottle. It is not as fresh as the newer harvests, but it is still really delicious and not the least bit rancid. The fresher the olives that are milled (wait time between harvest and processing) the cleaner the oil, the cleaner the oil the less organic material that can cause spoilage much fasted. So we harvest and mill within a very short time. as soon as they have collected enough for a batch it gets processed.

Awesome! Appreciate the information. Anything special I should or should not do in terms of storage?

My first time. In for an elite + tacked on a rice & paella seasoning kit. Pretty stoked to make my first paella.

Two questions for you:
1) When do you think delivery would be to East Coast/major city, e.g. NY? I have some family over 2nd week of February and wondering if delivery would be in time for that?
2) For how many people will the rice & paella seasoning kit be good for? I'm guessing the seasoning kit could be used for more than a single 2lbs of rice? And I figure a single 2lb of rice is good for 8 people?

Thanks!

One of the very best BD offers! Well, the Grassl Glasses are awesome, too.

Sardines
Manchego
Chorizo
Blood sausage

And nowhere near enough.

For me a kilo of rice for 8 is probably about 1/2 the bag, maybe a bit less.
Shipping of the liquid parts is more temperature driven. I will keep you posted. [cheers.gif] [cheers.gif]

A video would be great to see how to best cut the jamon and then any best practices for keeping the jamon fresh for later use. Looking forward to taking that first cut when it arrives.

I suggest you delete the items in your shopping cart, close the page and then reopen and try again. As to the different prices, there are the links to the BD deals and then there are the regular priced items. Once BD is over I switch back to the regular price, so apart from that I don't know what else to tell you. There have been numerous purchases and very few glitches, never the less I am sorry you have had difficulties.

In for 6 oil and some chorizo.

I am using 2016 oil, bottled 1/2017, stored at room temp, and I can drink tablespoons of it with great pleasure at present, still!

Until purchasing this olive oil over the last few years, it never dawned on me that, just like wine vintages, the olive oil can be different each year. It has been fun trying the different vintages. As Robert said, the 16 is still very good, and I still like it slightly more than the 17, I think. We are almost out of both, so I look forward to trying the 18. This is my favorite Berserker Day discovery and the only sure thing I buy each year. The rest are impulse purchases!

What do all of you use the olive oil for? I usually go through about one bottle of good olive oil a year (as opposed for stuff used for sauteeing) so I'm having trouble figuring out what to do with 6 other than to use as gifts.

Will use it for dressings and finishing cooked veggies. Summer time will use it for pesto, sans garlic, but will use pistachios

I use olive oil in my tomato salads, on pasta, for bread dipping, and to prep veggies before grilling...

On eggs? This caught my eye as something I never thought to try. Do you just drizzle it over a sunny side up?

Jay, sunny side up, flipped but with soft yolks, or even scrambled. I also drizzle it on my toast instead of using butter. I usually have fresh spinach with my eggs too and I drizzle the olive oil on that with a little salt and pepper.

Thanks, I'll give that a try once the oil arrives.

Basted but with oil. Put enough EVOO in your pan so you can wave it over the top of the yoke, puffs up and cooks the white but the yoke remains "dip-able"!!

Jay I use my EVOO for everything. Menestra is a great way to fix veges. Parboil your fave veges or you can microwave them too. Then saute a clove or two of garlic and a chopped onion in the EVOO, then add your veges, salt and pepper to taste, when done, drizzle with some fresh EVOO and vinegar. Completely changes the veges.

Fried tomato sauce (tomate frito)
EVOO in a pan, heat it up, add chopped garlic and then onion, the add several (6 - 8 ) diced tomatoes, saute stirring frequently until the tomato becomes a sauce. I run it through a food mill to make it smooth. This is a basic recipe for Spanish cooking. Tomate con carne (beef, pork), chicken, salt cod.... its endless you can make a bunch and freeze it, etc...
