Cooking Spice Blends: Olio Do Panne

It makes a great oil for sautes or simply to mix with your favorite vinegar or lemon juice to adorn a salad.  This concoction may also be used as a marinade for fish, meat, poultry,  and vegetables, or as a sauce for pasta or white pizza.

In Medieval Times, Italian woman would send their husbands to work with a loaf of fresh baked bread and a small flask of herbed olive oil for dipping as their noontime meal.  It was a fresh, flavorful, and practical way to feed the men while away from home.  Throughout the ages, containers of olive oil for dipping adorned the tables of many European homes, rather than butter.  Today, modern conveniences allow us to have a huge number of choices for our bread, therefore, the tradition of making olive oil for dipping has virtually been forgotten...until now.
