Canaan’s Jenin Olive Oil is a blend of early harvest and late harvest oil, producing a wide range of flavors. The fresh green grass and bitterness of early harvest mixes with the ripe fruit, sweet and buttery finish of late harvest olives. This oil represents the pride of Jenin’s olive trees. The blend undergoes several pressings, in the same way that farmers have pressed oil in local villages throughout each season.
The Jenin area is regarded as Palestine’s bread basket, the richest and most productive region in the land of Canaan. The city’s name came from its lush springs and gardens. In Arabic, the word “Jannah” actually means paradise. Jenin oil is special, savory and useful for all kinds of cooking and serving food. Use this fine olive oil every day for cooking, drizzling and dipping.
Canaan’s infused ingredients are pressed together with select indigenous Surri olives known for their robust flavor. This remarkably fresh infusion of lemon zest, purple basil, spicy wild thyme, savory garlic, and hot chili peppers is sure to please the palate. Infused oils are only prepared once a year during the olive harvest. Canaan’s flavor packed varieties offer a palate of perfection for dipping, drizzling, or cooking vegetables, meat or seafood. Try them all by ordering an assorted 6-pack!
