How to store an infused olive oil?
You should store infused olive oil in the refrigerator. In a fridge, your infused olive oil will stay good for almost a month. In the fridge, the olive oil will slightly solidify. Therefore, you may need to bring it back to room temperature before you drizzle it over cold food.
When the olive oil develops a bitter or sour taste and gives off a smell similar to that of crayons or putty, you should discard it right away.
Why is my infused olive oil cloudy?
If your infused olive oil has turned cloudy, there is no need to worry about it. It is often due to the naturally occurring olive sediment that remains unfiltered in some extra virgin olive oils. It may also due to the cold refrigeration temperatures.

Why is Tuscan olive oil so famous?
Olive oil is an essential component of Italian and Mediterranean cooking. It gives a brilliant and delightful flavor to the dishes to which it is added. In Tuscany, olive oil has a unique significance. There it is used instead of butter as the cows there produce milk with low-fat content.
In Tuscany, several types of olives are cultivated for ages. However, the small-scale grove owners use the same traditional oil-making methods and earn a good sum by selling these bottles full of fragrant, delicious, and healthy oils. It is estimated that each tree produces only one liter of oil, so we can rightfully call it Tuscany’s liquid gold.
However, you must very carefully read the labels to ensure that you are purchasing the original Tuscan olive oil, as some manufacturers may also mislead you and make you buy something that is not originally Tuscan.
