Imagine crushing blood oranges together with hand-picked Mission olives. The olive oil picks up the fragrant oils in the orange rind, becoming subtly flavored. Blood Orange Olive Oil is the latest product from the Olive Press, a 6-year-old partnership of 13 olive growers in Glen Ellen, Calif. Drizzle the oil over fennel or spinach salads, spring asparagus or other vegetables, or use it to add some pizazz to simple grilled salmon or roasted chicken.

Blood Orange Olive Oil, 250-milliliter bottle, $18, plus shipping, (800) 965-4839 or on the Web at
