Well, you are Canadian, after all!

If it's not Beer, Hockey, Ice Wine, or Maple Syrup, it's not in your vocabulary.

It probably won't be too hot since I don't think Auntie can handle hot any more--she's in her 80s! Thanks for your help!


Again, thanks for all the suggestions. We decided to go with a sampling: Pedroncelli Friends.white, 2007 Scott Harvey InZinerator and an Abita Turbodog. The Abita was by far the winner! Thank you InFrom for suggesting a local beer from Louisiana!

The Friends, a blend of Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, just wasn't vigorous enough. The InZinerator didn't work with whatever flavoring Cousin Peter put in the Jambalaya. I suppose it could have been the glassware affecting the flavor of the wines, but we won't even discuss that! The Turbodog was just right. It had a sweet chocolate, toffee-like flavor which seemed to work best with the flavors in the food.

For those of you who are EVOO aficionados, I just opened up the Olio Nuovo that ddeuddeg purchased for his kids. The bottles seem to have some sort of sediment-like stuff in them--but it moves something like a jellyfish. I guess one could say that it is rather viscous. There is not a lot of it, but enough that it is noticeable. Would this be "normal" for an EVOO of this quality? I'm just not sure. And, I can't very well open them--presents and all.

I dont know -- has the stuff been at room temp for quite a while? I sure hope it's suitable for gifting -- we plan to bring a bottle of the new oil to our friends' house tomorrow. Oh well, if the oil isn't a hit, perhaps the bubbly we'll bring will compensate. Not sure what we'll pick up, but we have some nice wine stores in the area.

Tonight with an assortment of leftovers we're very much enjoying a Pedroncelli Sangio. We also brought along a Noceto Sangio Riserva, which we'll save for a more fitting meal.

Glad the Abita worked out -- never tried that one. When we were in NOLA a few years ago I tried a strawberry brew of theirs, which wasn't half bad. Pretty light style, not sweet, and greatly enhanced by the ability to stroll through the Quarter, cup in hand. (I don't suppose you and your relatives were doing that in Buffalo last night?)

I've never run across it. The color should be a nice green, unless it's been infused. I've never had one with sediment, nor one that's acted like "jellyfish".

1) It should have been stored in a cool and dark place.

2) IIRC, it can be kept unopened for around 1.5 years, maybe a little longer.

3) It usually can go rancid after a long time, especially if not stored in a cool dark place. If you notice a stale smell, it's bad.


What does it smell like?

This is the order that just arrived within the past few days. It has been recently stored--on the cold delivery truck! Two bottles were somewhat congealed upon arrival per ddeuddeg. I do not know what they smell like--I haven't opened them--they are presents!! I guess we'll just have to ask the recipients to open them so that we can be sure they are OK--just in case they are not.

Try warming them up a bit...olive oil in the cold can get viscous and even solidify. Not too warm, of course...just a nice toasty, say, 70-ish?

Ditto. Especially if there's a key lime version in there somewhere. That's molarchae's favourite...whereas I'm more of a ricotta cheesecake person than a NY cheesecake fan.

I've seen it solidify when a package was delivered via USPS. However, this has been in the house for several days with temp about 68 degrees.

We had to cancel the grown kids coming over. bahwm seems to be a bit under the weather--nothing too serious, but she doesn't want to subject 12 people to it! She slept for about an hour and a half a feels a bit better. ddeuddeg thinks it's just total fatigue. Could be. Gathering rescheduled for two weeks. Grown kids are basically only all available Sunday evenings due to crazy work schedules!

There is a key lime version that is INCREDIBLE! Ricotta cheesecake, never even tried one. NY Cheesecake: highly over-rated.
