November Newsletter, 2013 November 01 2013

It's finally here. Honest to goodness autumn. This newsletter is being written as I'm enjoying  a lovely fall rain, wet leaves and the beginnings of cozy thoughts, with great things going on at Olive Tree in November.

Buy three 375 ml bottles and get 50% off fourth bottle, equal or lesser value. (Does not include flavors entering retirement).


Onion and Sage Olive Oil - Mmmm is the reaction you'll get when you taste this one! Bump up the flavor to spectacular when you add it to mashed potatoes, stuffing, soups, stews, chowders, and roasted meats.

Garlic Cilantro Balsamic - Cilantro is a bright, pungent herb used in Asian, Mexican and Indian cooking.  We've paired it with classic garlic and the result is one awesome balsamic you'll want to keep in the front of your pantry.  Try a splash in mayonnaise to jazz up any sandwich. Add it to guacamole, salads, salsas, sauces, marinades, cheese, vegetables, meats and stews. The list is endless. Pairs well with the any of our citrus olive oils.

White Pear Balsamic - Use now to compliment cranberry dishes and later to enhance those luscious winter pears.  Perfect to use in place of white sugar when making pies, crumbles and tarts!

Cranberry Orange Balsamic- Sure to be a new seasonal favorite, this rich sweetly sour balsamic is the perfect condiment for almost anything. Instead of your usual meatball dish, add this balsamic then fry in the Sage & Onion Olive Oil for your next gathering.

HOLIDAY APPETIZER CLASS:  YOU want great food at a holiday cocktail party and you want to impress people? You don’t want a caterer, you refuse to heat up frozen food, and you want to show that your expertise extends beyond buying perfectly ripe hunks of cheese and juicy olives? Each can be produced in 20 minutes or less. Many can be served at room temperature. And none require a plate! Denise is returning in November! Join us on Wednesday, November 13th at 7:00 PM. Class is $20.00 in cash or check written to Denise the evening of class. Reserve your spot with a credit card. Must cancel within 48 hours of class, otherwise the card will be charged. No exceptions, thanks.

FOR YOUR SWEET TOOTH:  Introducing "Sweet and Saucy" caramel sauces to dip and drizzle, or bake right in. Who can resist Salted Caramel, Autumn Harvest (pumpkin spice), Aunt Emily's Cranberry Caramel and Cinnamon (sticky bun in a jar)!  What's that? You're a chocolate person? How about their version of Peanut Butter Fudge or Peppermint White Chocolate? Uh huh. We know!

Also, Barbara from Confection Perfection will be back with her delicious toffee. Come visit Barbara in the store on November 16th and 23rd from 2-4 p.m. to sample her extraordinary confections. Toffee will be available for purchase from November 16th through the end of the year.

WHAT'S RETIRING?  We bid a fond goodbye to our Nova Olivia Premium and Sundried Tomato Olive Oils, Lavender and Jalapeño Fig Balsamics. Grab these while they last for 50% off. Must make way for new beginnings...(discount not applicable in combination with other offers).

GIFT IDEAS: Buy any combination of $100.00 in gift certificates, and get a $20.00 coupon for you, to use in the store during 2014.

Look at these gorgeous grab and go combinations. Absolutely fabulous hostess gifts thoughtfully paired and in these perfect gift bags. Choose from Blood Orange Olive Oil and Fig Balsamic, or Meyer Lemon Olive Oil and Cranberry Pear Balsamic Vinegar. $39.95

We have packaged our adorable 60ml bottles to create the perfect cocktails. Just add vodka, gin or rum and maybe a splash of sparkle. $19.95
