Hit the panic button, I'm almost out of Olive oil
Ahh, Olive oil, that magical substance. Wars have been fought over it, beauties have indulged thier hair with it. It's even mentioned in the Quran and the Bible... And my reservoir is running low
No no, it's not that "Extra virgin" olive oil stuff you get at the store, this is the real thing, this is Olive oil from my own farm in Jordan, and boy is it blessed
Not only is it holy, it has been proved scientifically that it's extremely healthy and so good for the heart, brain, hair, nails, colon ... you name it, it's good for it. It has a high concentration of monounsaturated fatty acids the kind that gives you "the good cholesterol". And has high amounts of antioxidants.
The Quran says: "والتين والزيتون وطور سينينBy the fig and the Olive, by Mount Sinai... " (95:1-2)
And says:"يوقد من شجرة مباركة زيتونة لا شرقية ولا غربية يكاد زيتها يضيء ولو لم تمسسه نار ... Lit from a blessed tree, an olive, not eastern nor western, it's oil about to illuminate without the touch of a fire"
Amzing, just amazing
Couple of years ago, I had my family ship me a container (Tanakeh) from Jordan, and I have enjoyed the our own product. Olive oil from my land. Nothing beats that! But too much Msakhan, and too much pickling-hot-peppers (we'll talk about this one later) caused my stash to evaporate. It'll be weeks before I get more, so I'm going to ration what ever I have left in a very wise manner, mean while... PANIC ... GET SOME OLIVE OIL!
