However, these producers are being steadily driven from the market: extra-virgin olive oil is difficult and expensive to make, yet alarmingly easy to adulterate. Skilled oil criminals are flooding the market with low-cost, faux extra-virgins, reaping rich profits and undercutting honest producers, whilst authorities in Italy, the US and elsewhere turn a blind eye. From the feisty pugliese woman of sixty struggling to keep the family business afloat to her industrialist neighbour who has allegedly grown wealthy on counterfeit oil, to Benedictine monks in Western Australia and poker-playing agriculture barons in northern California who make this ancient foodstuff in New World ways, Mueller distils the passions and life stories of oil producers, and explores the conflict, culinary vitality and cultural importance of great olive oil.

Download and read online Extra Vergine in PDF and EPUB Olivenöl ist mehr als eine Zutat im Salat, Olivenöl ist Kult in unserer Küche. Bei kaum einem anderen Lebensmittel achten wir so sehr auf erlesene Qualität, Aroma und Herkunft. Doch ob ihr nobles kalt gepresstes Olivenöl aus dem Supermarkt für 3,99 Euro wirklich so jungfräulich ist, wie auf dem Etikett versprochen, und ob es wirklich von glücklichen italienischen Müttern gepflückt und produziert wurde, ist mehr als fraglich. Von wegen »Extra Vergine« und kalt gepresst: Etikettenschwindel ist keine Seltenheit. Nicht selten wird das Vertrauen der Verbraucher skrupellos missbraucht. Mit dieser und vielen anderen Wahrheiten konfrontiert uns der Olivenöl-Experte und Journalist Tom Mueller in diesem Buch. Er erzählt darin die Geschichte des Anbaus und Handels in den verschiedenen Regionen und deckt die Intrigen, Skandale und Mauscheleien auf, die inzwischen die Olivenölproduktion bestimmen. Mueller kennt die Akteure und Profiteure dieser Branche: auf der einen Seite Unternehmen und Konzerne, bei denen Menge über alles geht, auch über Qualität, und auf der anderen Seite die engagierten Kleinbauern, Lebensmittelkontrolleure und Food-Aktivisten, die für ein außergewöhnliches Öl kämpfen, welches das Gütesiegel »Extra Vergine« wirklich verdient. Tom Mueller räumt mit vielen Mythen auf, die sich um das Olivenöl ranken. Dennoch: Es gibt es noch, das qualitativ hochwertige Öl – und Mueller verrät uns, woran man es erkennt.

Download and read online The Truth About Olive Oil in PDF and EPUB The Truth about Olive Oil Benefits – Curing Methods -- Remedies Forward by Jim Henry President Texas Olive Ranch Executive Director Texas Olive Oil Council The Truth about Olive Oil is NOT a cook book. There are no recipes for cooking in the Mediterranean style. There are no pizza recipes. If anything, you could say this book is about a celebration of the benefits the lowly little olive showers on those who embrace its many flavors and colors by using it – both internally (by eating it) and externally (by rubbing it on their skin and in their hair). Its health giving benefits (anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties) are legendary and can be traced back to its earliest uses well before the time of Christ. In the pages of this book, I hope to stimulate further interest in the use of olives and olive oil by presenting various “how to do it” scenarios that are practical and fun. For instance, making table olives is an easy and fun thing to do that takes very little actual “doing” on your part. Most of the curing time can be spent by your doing other things while the curing medium does the job of making the fruit edible. I provide specific instructions on how to do this. And what about getting olives from your own tree(s) pressed so you can enjoy home-grown olive oil? You might think that only commercial growers can do this. Well, I found two commercial olive oil processors who will accept your smaller loads of olives, combine them with other small loads, do the pressing and the bottling and return the resultant oil to you on a prorated basis. In addition, I tell you about the various grades of olive oil and what they mean to you in terms of their nutritional value. I think you’ll be quite surprised at what you discover. The external uses of olive oil (and some internal uses as well) all involve using this liquid as a form of folk remedy. It’s a skin lotion to soothe rough chapped elbows or lips; it’s a diaper rash cure; it’s a massage oil for easing aches and pains; it’s a lot of things and we’ve only just scratched the surface. There are more inside the book. What you’ll get out of reading this book is a greater appreciation for this elixir that can enhance your life and health in ways you may never even have thought of.

Since then it has accrued many wonderful reviews by its Amazon purchasers and currently (Dec. 7, 2013) sports an overall 4 stars from 12 reviews. Here is an excerpt from inside this book (not the same as the “Look Inside This Book” excerpt: . . . Nothing in Nature is “pure”! Ordinarily we automatically think of “pure” as a good thing, so when discussing “pure” in relation to things we put in our mouths and swallow, it may be difficult to turn our thinking 180° and realize that, if we need edibles to be as close to Nature as possible, and we do, we don’t want “pure”. “Pure” = no health benefits – no enzymes – no phytochemicals – no micro-nutrients. In other words, to borrow a concept from my other book (How to Eat Healthy), “pure” = pica, a non-nutritious edible that may change how the cells use food. -- End of Excerpt --

Download and read online Edible Memory in PDF and EPUB Each week during the growing season, farmers’ markets offer up such delicious treasures as brandywine tomatoes, cosmic purple carrots, pink pearl apples, and chioggia beets—varieties of fruits and vegetables that are prized by home chefs and carefully stewarded by farmers from year to year. These are the heirlooms and the antiques of the food world, endowed with their own rich histories. While cooking techniques and flavor fads have changed from generation to generation, a Ribston Pippin apple today can taste just as flavorful as it did in the eighteenth century. But how does an apple become an antique and a tomato an heirloom? In Edible Memory, Jennifer A. Jordan examines the ways that people around the world have sought to identify and preserve old-fashioned varieties of produce. In doing so, Jordan shows that these fruits and vegetables offer a powerful emotional and physical connection to a shared genetic, cultural, and culinary past. Jordan begins with the heirloom tomato, inquiring into its botanical origins in South America and its culinary beginnings in Aztec cooking to show how the homely and homegrown tomato has since grown to be an object of wealth and taste, as well as a popular symbol of the farm-to-table and heritage foods movements. She shows how a shift in the 1940s away from open pollination resulted in a narrow range of hybrid tomato crops. But memory and the pursuit of flavor led to intense seed-saving efforts increasing in the 1970s, as local produce and seeds began to be recognized as living windows to the past. In the chapters that follow, Jordan combines lush description and thorough research as she investigates the long history of antique apples; changing tastes in turnips and related foods like kale and parsnips; the movement of vegetables and fruits around the globe in the wake of Columbus; and the poignant, perishable world of stone fruits and tropical fruit, in order to reveal the connections—the edible memories—these heirlooms offer for farmers, gardeners, chefs, diners, and home cooks. This deep culinary connection to the past influences not only the foods we grow and consume, but the ways we shape and imagine our farms, gardens, and local landscapes. From the farmers’ market to the seed bank to the neighborhood bistro, these foods offer essential keys not only to our past but also to the future of agriculture, the environment, and taste. By cultivating these edible memories, Jordan reveals, we can stay connected to a delicious heritage of historic flavors, and to the pleasures and possibilities for generations of feasts to come.
