5. Drain the potatoes and allow them to rest in the Dutch oven for 2-3 minutes, so the extra water can evaporate.

12. After the 20 minutes, turn all the potatoes with a metal spatula. 
13. Continue roasting the potatoes until they're a deep, golden brown (about another 30 to 40 minutes). Turn them every so often to prevent them from sticking.

Why Us?

From regional to naturally flavored to infused, all our oils meet the strictest standards. Here is a look at what makes our oils so special.

High Standards

Our supplier starts with the best quality, unrefined Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The oils are regionally grown in places such as Chile, Argentina, Italy, Spain, and Australia. Then, the International Olive Council certifies the quality of all the oils we carry in our store. Every lot is tested and certified as 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil by approved laboratories.

We carry the following unflavored, 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oils:
— Mission: From California, a smooth and velvety olive oil, great on chicken and pork.
— Picual: From Chile, bold flavor with a peppery finish.
— Umbria: From Italy, sweet with a bitter sensation, pairs well with Lambrusco red wine vinegar and hickory, garlic, or jalapeño balsamic vinegar.
— Tres Oliva: From Spain, olive oil from 3 different varieties of olives. Aromatic, ripe, and fruity. A true taste of olives.
— Barnea: From Australia. Has herbal notes and mild bitterness. Nicely balanced.

Naturally Flavored Olive Oils


High quality, extra-virgin olive oil is combined with natural concentrates and extracts to produce our delicious flavored oils. Our naturally flavored selections include:


Blood Orange: Features the taste of fresh oranges. Goes great with dark chocolate or in brownies.
-- Butter (EvilO Olio): Blends the taste of olives with butter. Perfect on popcorn or baked potatoes.
-- Meyer Lemon: Aromatic and light, this oil is perfect in salads, as a bread dipper, or drizzled over fresh hummus.
Persian Lime: Tastes crisp and fresh. Pairs well with pear balsamic vinegar as a salad dressing. Drizzle over fish.
— Sage and Onion: This oil is an excellent addition to mashed potatoes or stuffing.
Smoked Hickory: Imparts the flavors of cooking over an open fire. Mix with garlic balsamic vinegar for a chicken marinade. Also great added to a pot of beans. Pair with pineapple or pecan praline balsamic vinegars.

Infused Olive Oils

Extra virgin olive oil is filtered without chemicals or heat to make pure olive oil. This removes any inherent or distinct flavors. Next, herbs, spices, or fruit are steeped in the oil for 6 to 8 weeks to produce olive oils with incredible flavor profiles. Choose from these infused oils:

Basil: The bright, fresh taste of basil is perfect in salad dressings, as a bread dipper, or on pasta. Pairs well with garlic or lemongrass mint balsamic vinegars.
-- Chipotle: An ideal balance of smoke and heat. Chipotle infused olive oil works well with grilled or smoked meats, as a bread dipper, or added to salsa.
Garlic: Fragrant and crisp garlic makes this a favorite choice. Pairs with hickory balsamic to make a memorable marinade for poultry and grilled veggies.
Habanero: This oil is no joke. It’s HOT! Combine with pineapple balsamic for a sweet and sassy marinade.
Jalapeno: Spicy and flavorful. Tastes great added to salsa or guacamole.
— Rosemary: Full of flavor and aroma. Drizzle on poultry or fish or use in salad dressings. Makes a great bread dipper.

These oils are a combination of infused and naturally flavored oils. This produces delectable flavors you will love! We offer the following selection:

Tuscan Herb: Bursting with the flavors of Tuscany! You’ll love this as a bread dipper or drizzled over chicken or pasta.
Garlic Cilantro: Makes a great accompaniment to Mexican dishes. Drizzle over tacos, fajitas, guacamole, or salsa.
Garlic Mushroom: An all-time favorite! We love to use it on chicken or grilled veggies. Also goes well with pasta or salad dressings.
