For That Final Flourish, a Flavored Olive Oil

Last year, McEvoy Ranch released a well-received olive oil seasoned with crushed lemons local to its Petaluma, California, location. This year, they’ve added a companion, an oil made with jalapeños. For both, the lemons or chiles are crushed with the olives. The jalapeño oil has a delightfully grassy, vegetal allure, with moderate heat. The lemon oil gets a boost from black pepper. Both are seasoning oils, to gloss and flavor a dish just before serving.
