Thanksgiving and Traditions go together like, well, Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar! For November's Flavor of the Month, we want to offer our own Tradition for your Thanksgiving celebration, our 18 year Traditional Balsamic Vinegar.
We are often asked, "Which is the most popular balsamic vinegar in the store? This is it! Flying Olive's 18 Year Balsamic is perfect for salads, fruit, meat, drizzling over steamed or roasted veggies, bruschetta, or ice cream!
It pairs beautifully with any of our Extra Virgin Olive Oils. It's also a perfect complement to add a swirl of this luscious balsamic to any of our dipping oils.
This is an ideal time to stock up your pantry and add one more bottle as a gift for your hostess at Thanksgiving or as a Christmas or Holiday gift. In addition, we have beautiful gift bags from $2-$4.50 to make your gift giving even more special.
From November 1-30, our 18 Year Traditional Balsamic Vinegar is $11.95 for a 200ml, $15.95 for a 375ml bottle.
Order online, call, or stop in to take advantage of this offer. And, if we can help with ordering or recipes, please call us at 513-943-1900. Happy Thanksgiving from the staff at Flying Olive: Wade, Ceil, Chuck, and Barb.





1 box of Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix (I particularly like Ghiradelli)

Substitute the 1/3 cup (or amount directions indicate) of vegetable oil with Flying Olive’s Blood Orange Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Bake as directed on the box. Serve with the Raspberry Reduction Below, ice cream, whipped cream or topping.


Raspberry Balsamic Reduction:


1 cup of Flying Olive Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar


Place the Flying Olive Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar in a small saucepan and heat on low simmer for about 15 minutes.

Let the balsamic cool in the pan. It will thicken more as it cools.

Just before serving, place a small scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of the brownie.

Drizzle the Raspberry Balsamic Reduction on top of the ice cream.
