Uses of Olive Oil

Olive oil is increasingly becoming a favorite staple in today’s kitchen. It is the most recommended oil to use in many diets. Available in many different varieties, such as virgin, extra virgin, and pure olive oil, it can be used in more ways than you can imagine. Here are some tips on how you can get the maximum benefits by using it.

Olio Extravergine

Use It In Your Salad Dressing

Almost everyone knows that you can use olive oil in your salad, but do you know which one tastes best? When using olive oil in your salad dressing, you’ll want to use the olio extravergine or extra virgin olive oil. Create an oil and vinegar dressing, or just drizzle olive oil over fresh cut tomatoes and cucumbers. The taste of this oil is bold, yet not acidic. The aroma is strong but pleasant.

It’s Great For Baking

Try using olive oil in place of vegetable oil in your recipes. You’ll see that your cakes will be moist, tasty, and fluffy. Substituting olive oil for butter in a recipe will also lower the fat content. Virgin olive oil is great, but if it is too flavorful, light olive oil can be used instead.

Massage

Olive oil is great for the skin. You can apply virgin olive oil directly and use it to give a relaxing massage. It’s absorbent and provides relief for dry skin.

Facial Scrub

When mixed with a salt, olive oil can be used as a facial scrub. The salt exfoliates, while the oil gives the skin moisture.

Polish Your Furniture

Olive oil is great for your wooden furniture. It nourishes and conditions the wood, plus it gives it an amazing shine. By using a spray bottle, you’ll avoid applying excess. If you do apply too much, just wipe the furniture down with a paper towel.

“Light” Does Not Refer To Calories

Light olive oil does not mean that it has less calories. It is referring to the color and the taste. It is lighter in color and the taste is milder than other olive oils.

There are endless possibilities to what you can do with olive oil. After trying these tips, you’re sure to come up with some great new ideas of your own.

Cake For Bookworms

We are a family of bookworms. Our deepest love for books extends through generations, it runs in the blood or so they say. Recently, a cousin of mine, who is also a librarian and a die-hard bibliophile, celebrated her birthday.

Book Cake

Her birthday cake was shaped as a purple book carefully adorned with little books that are perfectly placed around it and a little lady in a purple dress, who is absorbed in reading. What seemed to be more surprising was the inside of the cake! A melt-in-your-mouth chocolate cake covered in a thick chocolate frosting. It was by far one of the best cakes I have ever tasted! If given the chance, I would love to meet whoever made it and ask for the recipe; witnessing him in the dessert’s actual preparation would be much better. With the zoom audio recorder, I would love to record all the processes made in the making of such scrumptious desert and create my own version of it at home.

How to Start your Own Frozen Custard Business

In your local area, opening a business that is unique to the community can be quite profitable. Self-serve frozen custard and frozen yogurt shops are popular. Children enjoy making their own desserts and adults enjoy tapping into their inner child for a cold treat. When you’re considering starting your own frozen custard business, these are a few items to pay close attention to.

Frozen Custard
Research and Development

It is important to research any potential competition in your local area. Some cities have ice cream shops or frozen yogurt shops, but few have frozen custard shops. Frozen custard is smoother and creamier than ice cream or frozen yogurt, so it offers something different in your local area.

Development includes creating recipes and combinations based upon surveys of the local area and which flavors/flavor combinations are the most popular there. Developing your menu based upon statistics will help you be more appealing to the residents and is likely to bring in business from neighboring communities. Take the time during the development phases to create an exclusive flavor or flavor combination to set your business apart from any competition.

Recipe Testing

Create recipes and test them. If your homemade base is not returning the results you’ve expected, begin testing products from frozen custard mix suppliers. These companies have perfected their recipes, which are easily customized in your shop, to create the desired consistency of frozen yogurt. It is important to test each and every recipe using a focus group comprised of local residents to determine which flavor ideas will be appealing.

Finding a Location and Obtaining Financing

It is important to find a location that has indoor and outdoor seating. You will need space for booths and a counter serving area is also ideal. Ample parking should be available and the location should be easily accessible.

In terms of financing, a small business loan or investment from an outside party can help you open the doors of the new frozen custard shop and maintain it for up to a year, sometimes longer. Securing financing before applying for any type of lease or operations permit should be done. You have to know if you’ll have the money to open your business or not first.

Closing Thoughts

Offering free taste samples is necessary. Customers want to know that they will enjoy a flavor before they purchase their dessert. It is ideal to keep tasting spoon availability upon request to ensure that customers are not eating more than they’re paying for. On launch day, offer a discount to attract more of the local community. Your toppings bar should include healthy and indulgent items, including fresh fruit.
