Extra Virgin Olive Oil is one of the best oils for frying. It has a great frying stability (it is very resilient even to high temperatures -from 356°F to 392°F), it does not oxidise easily and can be used several times without losing its beneficial ingredients.
The olive tree is native to the Mediterranean basin and archeological evidence shows that it was produced as early as 4000 BC. Historically, olive oil was used not only for food, but for medicine, lamp fuel, soap, and skin care.
