Sierra

Recipes with Olive Oil – Sierra

The Mission olive is the oldest variety in California, having arrived with Franciscan padres in the late 18th century. Like Cabernet or Zinfandel grown in the Sierra Foothills, Mission grown in the Sierras has deeper and more robust flavors than its counterparts in the valley. Our Sierra is made of 70% Mission, with estate-grown Frantoio and Leccino varieties blended in for roundness, complexity, and balance.

Sierra is ideal for combining with tomatoes: raw in salads (like a caprese, with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes), cooked in a pasta sauce, or even for finishing a soup. It complements heartier dishes, such as stews, ragus, and all manner of meat dishes.
