The world’s largest producer of olive oil is Spain, followed by Italy. The biggest oil reserves in the world are located in Andalusia (Olive Oil, of course!). The autochthonous varieties in those areas tend to get harvested early and are often marketed as ‘early harvest’. The difference between early harvested oils and late harvest oils is that the former tends to have a stronger taste than the late harvest ones.
Most available oils on the market have this strong taste. Our oil however comes from late harvested olives, so mild that some people think it is seed oil. One of the best things about it is that you can use it instead of butter for baking!
At Teruel Foods, we prefer an olive oil that doesn’t mask any other flavour from the other ingredients. If that’s what you like, that’s what you’ll get from us.
Good mng dear followers ! ? here goes some pictures of what has been sold so far this week of Tuber Uncinatum. Customers tend to only think of Tuber Magnatum as “THE” truffle, and don’t get me wrong, it’s the king of truffles. But Uncinatum at this time is also delicious and full of fragance and much cheaper. £500/Kg
Olive oil is a juice of olives. If you harvest them when they are not fully ripened the taste is rough and strong, which might suit some customers. But if you pick them fully ripened and you create a juice with them, you get a sweeter and smoother juice. Think of tomatoes, would you squeeze green tomatoes to have a nice oil taste or you’d prefer perfectly ripened ones?
General available oils come from Andalusia or Italy. In both of them they prefer strong tastes masquerading flavours. In Teruel, we don’t. We like tasting real flavours. Do you want to follow us?

It’s never too late or too early for the truffle season. We started last week. Decent demand so far. Truffles are still expensive 4000GBP for the good quality ones. Certainly I’d suggest wait a bit, but if you cannot, you know where to find them !!!
Today we feel @teruelfoods For those who had forgotten this #autumn here goes how the #fungus season was … unbeatable!! we had the chance to #eat well and loads. Thanks #Nature
#truffle #dream again … Winter Truffle #season is giving us his last weeks. Here are the last ones from this week. #Round #franganced #beautiful … From #TeruelFoods with love. #Bianchetto will have to wait … They are not great this year, sadly
My dear colleague Bruno will call it: #Antitumorale My parents produced it from our own #harvest last summer and those #tomatoes are sweet as candy and have no #preservative They are delicious. Maybe a new #TeruelFoods #Product ?? who knows !!
Not the best looking #Melanosporum and not the biggest either. Winter #truffle season is starting to feel it won’t last long. #Bianchetto is out there already, but it’s not as good as we like, so we wait for the right ones … #Melanosporum sells for £750/Kg this week

January truffle in December. Great aroma and yummy taste !! #goMelanosporumGo
Example of disastrous #truffles !!! this is to show you the difference with the top quality ones you get from us !!
Last week #truffles pictured. They weren’t excellent as they were the first in the season, but the cold weather is making them ripen nicely. This week just before Xmas the price tend to go up. No matter of the quality it’s a product used in a lot places and they need truffles !!! What I’d suggest you, is to buy the first week of January. The quality is better than now and the price certainly too.
Enjoy the truffles
