The advent of more and more folks craving spice in their meals has expanded the hot sauce and chili oil market into booming status. Simply put, the people like it hot. Now, an olive oil has decided to enter the spicy chat.
Corto, a Californian olive oil brand, announced today its first Agrumato-method olive oil: Agrumato Calabrian Chili. The Agrumato method entails crushing and co-extracting heirloom varieties of Calabrian chilies with California olives harvested at peak freshness this fall season.
The result is what Corto claims as a first-of-its kind chili olive oil.
“Agrumato is a far cry from the infused oils most consumers are familiar with,” explained Corto Master Miller David Garci-Aguirre. “Instead of adding flavor to oil that has already been extracted, we crush the olives and Calabrian chilies together, resulting in a more full-bodied and flavorful experience.”
