Olive Oil and Vinegar for Your Next Party Favor

My family visited a great little store in Rockland, Maine this past weekend, (they also have one in Bar Harbor) Fiore Artisan Olive Oils and Vinegars.

They had a beautiful tasting room and store and I cannot begin to tell you how yummy the olive oil and vinegars were.

We were pleasantly surprised by how the flavors of the balsamic (aged 12 and 18 years) tasted. The kids had a great time in the tasting room and we chose the Strawberry Balsamic, Black Cherry Balsamic and Persian Lime Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

At 3 for $30 they make a great favor for bridal shower, wedding, or anniversary party.

I even thought about doing a 'vinegar of the month' for a gift. Be sure to check them out on facebook as well.

One poster on the Fiore facebook wall put up this recipe that looks delicious.

"I used the decadent dark chocolate balsamic with fresh Maine strawberries. Put about 1-2 Tbs in with quart and a little sugar- let them sit for a few hours. Mix some marscapone and whipped cream- use as a topping for the berries in dessert dishes and drizzle with the balsamic- heaven! Also drizzled it on vanilla ice cream."

That is a recipe I am going to try!
