      Olive oil is so delicious, it can be used for salad dressings and also for cooking, frying sauteing, and baking. It can be used for baking much more than traditional Italian cookies, like biscotti, and cakes which are usually made with olive oil, but also can be used to bake quick breads, muffins, scones, brownies, cookies and even crusts. Substitute butter for olive oil.
      Its important to use olive oil within 15 months of its harvest date and not by the "best by" date. Also, choose only oils that have dark glass bottles and keep out of light to avoid rancidity.
