Pomora Olive Oils

A few months ago I was asked if I would be interested in trying some olive oils that have a unique spin to them.

Pomora Olive Oils is a company that was created to give consumers more direct access to olive oils produced with more traditional methods to give a really great product.

How it works, is you "adopt" an olive tree from a farmer (in Italy).  You then receive quarterly shipments of the olive oil produced from that tree!

It's a really fun concept and give you the chance to incorporate something really special into your kitchen.

I do use olive oil frequently in my meal preparations (as I am sure you know).  It's a versatile oil with the health benefits of monounsaturated fats.  I readily admit that I really have never taken the time to taste different olive oils (without added flavors).  But this opportunity was not one to waste!

So, I served up one of our favorite, easy, weeknight meals. Caprese that consists of sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, and a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

I can honestly say that the difference in using the olive oils (I was sent two varieties) was incredible!  The flavor was outstanding compared to what I usually stock in my cupboard. My hubby commented several times about how noticeable the taste was- mild yet detectable-- in my opinion something that you should have in an olive oil!  You don't want to cover up the flavors in your meal, but accent them.

I encourage you to give them a try-- or gift them to someone whom would really appreciate having their own oil-producing tree!


  1. What a wonderful idea! How many ounces are in each oil container? Thanks for posting interesting products and wonderful recipes.

  2. Hi Karen - Sorry for the delay in replying to this. Each quarter you receive 3 x 250ml tins of oil. Alun, The Pomora Team.
