Editor’s Note: I was delighted to receive Tuscanini’s Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Calabrian Chili Peppers. Having tried Tuscanini cold pressed virgin olive oil, I must say it may just become a staple at our family table. It is delicious with crusty bread and I have used it to saute sea scallops, among other recipes. The olive oil has a well-balanced flavor and pleasant aroma reminiscent of fresh olives.
If you love a spicy condiment for fried eggs or on a slice of robust Italian rustic bread, you will enjoy the Calabrian Chili Peppers. It’s hot, so apply sparingly!
