Today my family had spaghetti, ground beef and something I first tasted at one of Gustiamo’s tastings in December: Pumpkin in Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Maida Farm.
We were about to eat when my dad decided that we should try something from Gustiamo (Well, it was my idea but he was the one who went to the kitchen to get the product). He came back with the Pumpkin in Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Maida Farm.
Now, if you ever got a jar of Pumpkin in Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Maida Farm or anything by Maida Farm in a jar you would know that it is sealed tight. One has to first open the top and then push up the plastic slowly while covering the top so that the oil would not splatter all over the place.
Well, my dad brought the jar to the table and when my sister and I tried to instruct him on how to open it, he let our directions go to the wind.
Little to say, he took a fork and just shoved it into the plastic which made olive oil splatter everywhere.
My sister and I couldn’t stop laughing. There was oil everywhere.
When he came back to the table, we sat there smiling.
This stuff is good! He said. While giving everyone a good portion.
Since it did splatter on him, he got to taste it first.
Hum…It’s s pumpkin in olive oil. It’s like the oil is used as a preservative.
And good it is, it is seasoned with wine vinegar, garlic, oregano, parsley and chili peppers. Spicy but not too spicy. It was the perfect topping to our meal.
