Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Lucero

Picual extra virgin olive oil is #2 of 9 on their scale of green to ripe, if you haven’t noticed, yes I am slowly working my way through Lucero Olive Oil‘s various single variety extra virgin olive oils in the green to ripe order.

Picual has turned out to be a really great oil to put on salads, and on sauted vegetables in general.

Picual does not have the peppery bite that Coratina does, but it also is not as bitter. However, Picual’s bitterness is much more noticeable if it’s used as a dipping oil for bread.
