Did you know that all olives start off green and as they ripen they gradually turn black? Here's a couple we caught in the act. Greener olives typically produce more robust, peppery Extra Virgin olive oils. Riper, darker coloured olives typically produce milder, lighter flavoured Extra Virgin olive oils.

We loved this 21 True or False Myths in #goodfood. However there should be 22. Number 22: You Can't COOK with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. BUSTED!! High quality Australian extra virgin olive oil like red island can in fact be heated up to 210 Degrees Celsius before it will start to burn. Deep-frying is not unusual in the Mediterranean. However extremely high temperature cooking, such as high temperature wok, is the only example where it’s not ideal. So don't be afraid to use it on the stove! http://bit.ly/1lLIdsl

We all LOVE soup. Especially homemade sweet roast pumpkin soup. Try roasting your pumpkin rather than boiling it next time. It's SO yummy! Jamie Oliver does a gear version.

“But I think having good quality olive oil every day has really helped. When I was much younger I had some gallbladder problems and the doctor advised me to take olive oil. It cured the problem so I decided to keep taking it – which I still do to this day.” #extravirgin #oliveoil http://goo.gl/8qzrop

Not much beats a fry up for breakfast. If you're good a run is slotted into that morning routine also. Contrary to popular belief, fresh Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a smoke point of around 220c. This makes it ideal for shallow frying. Enjoy brekky!
