Cinnamon Orange Skewers
Fruity is a MUST
Olive oil can only be graded as extra virgin when it is fruity. Fruitiness ranges widely from fresh grass, citruses, green tomatoes, peppery veggies like arugula and even green bananas!
Olive Oil Matching
Try Olivo’s Koroneiki extra virgin olive oil with this easy recipe. Its intensely fresh green fruitiness enhances the sweet-quenching orange slices, while cinnamon highlights the slow peppery entrance of an exceptional olive oil
How to make this.
1 tbsp Olivo Koroneiki
1 large Valencia orange
Cinnamon sugar mixture – 4 tsp raw sugar to 1 1⁄2 tsp cinnamon powder, mixed well
2 bamboo skewers
With a sharp knife peel orange and remove as much of the white parts around the orange as possible. Cut into 8 bite-sized cubes for skewers (or sliced into large wheels if not using skewers).
Skewer 4 orange cubes with one bamboo skewer. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on platter, roll orange skewer in it and drizzle with 1⁄2 tbsp Olivo Koroneiki. One orange makes 2 skewers.
Alternatively, arrange orange wheels on a platter and sprinkle all of the cinnamon sugar mixture all over. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil all over.
Increase the proportion of cinnamon powder to highlight peppery qualities of the olive oil. Serve skewers in a glass to make it easy to slurp up the remaining delicious extra virgin and cinnamon orange juice.
