Last week I found a new store in Madison, King's Olive Oil. It is a really neat store that sells infused olive oils and balsamic vinegars. A friend told me about this place and their blood orange brownies. So I had the time and it was a pretty day so I ventured to the far reaches of Madison County. I'm not really sure I was still Madison County. They have a web site and a Facebook page so check out the different oils and vinegars that they offer. I have my eye on several more for later. So back to the brownies. You remember those chocolate oranges that you use to get at Christmas? You whacked them on the counter and they broke into segments. The batter for these brownies smelled just like that.
You really need to give these brownies a try.
Strawberries in Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar
I know this might not sound good but it was pleasantly surprisingly good. I bought a bottle of the strawberry balsamic vinegar as well. I was thinking about making a dressing for salad but then I bought some strawberries and thought I would try it together.
King's Olive Oil is located in the Publix shopping center on County Line Rd. Their web site is: http://www.kingsoliveoil.com There are recipes so you can get an idea of how to use the oils and vinegars.
