Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Thanks, I have no doubt that you would send me some, but instead I will look for the Peloponnese the next time I buy some. The one I currently have is from Zakynthos. I wish your parents a good harvest.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Zakynthos is very close to all this too on the same general area style and climate. Crete has good oil too and so do many other islands. The real thing makes salads a great experience and even simple cheese and bread taste great. It makes fried potatoes and fried eggs very tasty too and of course i can recognize the difference right away from one you buy in the markets because i have bought also occasionally when i ran out in the past. Some are good. Probably the more expensive the safer unless they know to exploit you.

I can tell, you like to cook, so you will enjoy the real thing if you can securely find a good reliable source. Maybe you have already. I wonder what is the deal with actually trying to import from Greece eg in Messinia from the place that produces it directly, avoiding the markets. I am going to ask my father if there is a procedure to order directly from the local pressing site as in they fill it and mail it to you. There must be some demand for such direct approach that avoids the entire company packaging and processing cycle with endless intermediaries. You could probably get that way 17 lt (the "denekes" shown in the video at the last few seconds being filled and the one below) for about 17*4=68$ and who knows 50-100 in shipping, the cheaper the better with a real cargo ship, even if it takes 1-2 months its ok, it makes the olive oil mature better to not be used immediately after production. It would be worth it and would last a year or more with usage mostly in cooking, desserts and salads rather than frying.




Something like

but i wonder if the real direct pressing site can be attempted too.
