I continue my search for products made in Mexico.
I found Misiones Gold Medal winner Mexican olive oil (awarded at the International competition in New York) at Soriana in Puerto Vallarta in October . Previously I had bought one in Chapala Soriana. No more were stocked. So I thought I would try in PV while there and voila!
I bought three bottles. I am in the process of buying Mexican produced products since we live here. Olive oil is just one product. It has a lovely light taste. It is the middle bottle in the picture.

Recently my husband and I held an olive oil tasting party. We learned the steps in doing so while visiting an olive grove tasting in Napa and – a gift from our daughter. We bought the lemon infused oil from the shop at the grove and were given a recipe for ice cream with lemon olive oil. What a treat! I have introduced this treat to a number of friends who were delighted with the taste.
Contact us at our firstname.lastname@example.org, should you wish the complete recipe.
Read my new blog on our Olive Oil Tasting Party.
As an added NOTE: I heard today on the TV that Spain and Italy are having olive tree woes, so Mexico may be the best place to buy the oil. Just a thought. Linda
