When envisioning an olive grove, I - like many of you - immediately think about the beautiful fruit of the olive trees and the flavorful extra virgin olive oil that will soon be arriving from the Northern or Southern hemisphere harvests. However, in 2018, my vision expanded when I was introduced to Stone & Grove.¬†¬†Until then, I never thought about what the entirety of the tree could provide: from the trunk, the branches, and most importantly, the leaves.¬†
With the start of grilling season, we want to introduce you to Olive Lucy's new line of Grilling Seasonings and Rubs that are now available at the store and soon to be available online. To kick it off, here is a simple recipe for Barbacoa Steak on the grill. Pronounced ‚Äúbar-bah-COH-ah‚ÄĚ, Barbacoa is a popular spice blend used in Mexico. It commonly involves the slow cooking of various parts of cows, goats, lamb or pork over a smoldering fire. Barbacoa is also known as Mexican BBQ.
Artichokes...most of us have had them in dips, out of jar on salads or walked past them in the grocery store completely intimidated by the look of them. I know, because I'm all of the above. So this past month, I challenged myself to actually make an artichoke. I had one left over from an Olive Oil Tasting 101 class - because I wanted to demonstrate/compare the green flavor of one of our olive oils to the essence of the artichoke - and thought okay, now is my chance to overcome my reluctance to working with this item.
