What's the most you've ever paid for Olive Oil?
March 14, 2008 6:50pm CST
We have some french guest here just now and they've been telling us about friends who own an olive plantation & grow named varieties of olives which they sell for seriously huge amounts of money. I personally cannot imagine spending the sort so sums they were talking about on oil, but I bet it tasted good! So what's the most you've paid, or would pay, for olive oil? Was it a special occassion, or do you use the expensive stuff for everyday use?

We paid around $17.00 for a large tin and that was cheap. I also got a bottle of one through a gift card, and that was a bit much but it is worth it. I have a friend who sells cookware and the next time she throws a Pampered Chef party I am going to get a sprayer so I do not have to use that much for cooking. We use the expensive stuff for saueting, and salads. It is not recommended for deep frying, for that I have some peanut oil, although I will use regular olive oil for oven frying. But the extra virgin olive oil was only a couple of dollars more, so my husband said we should get it since it is good for us. I watch Rachel Ray and she uses extra virgin olive oil all the time, but then again, she does not do any deep frying.
