Infused Olive Oil Cake And Tuscan Herb Focaccia Recipe

Infused olive oil cake? Focaccia bread? Yes, please.

Looking for some new cannabis-infused olive oil recipes? We've compiled two delicious EVOO-rich recipes for you to try using our Original and Tuscan Herb olive oil varieties that you can infuse directly in the Ardent Nova and FX.

Don't forget to check out the brand-new Infusion Press and squeeze more out of every batch without ever getting your hands dirty!

Why use the Infusion Press? Say goodbye to messy straining equipment like cheesecloths and coffee filters, which need to be constantly re-purchased, and often absorb usable infused product in the process. Our Infusion Press is your new favorite resourceful kitchen tool! It's especially great for making large batches of infused oils.

Don't trust your recipes to just any oil. Did you know that 99% of EVOO oil on the marketplace is low quality with high acidity (made from decaying fruits) and low antioxidants? That's why Ardent went on a mission to partner with a Greek family farm specializing in super low acidity, high antioxidant, early harvest extra virgin olive oil. Simply the best olive oil we've ever had.

From taste to quality, this single source, sand grown, extra virgin olive oil puts shame to store-bought alternatives. Harvested in the first two weeks of its season, this olive oil is jam-packed with antioxidants and flavor. Not only can you infuse your olive oil directly inside the FX, but you can now separate out the unusable material in seconds, with a final product you can cook, bake, or even FRY with! Because our EVOO is harvested early with plenty of antioxidants present, the oil's smoke point AND shelf life are significantly higher. Treat yourself and your family and learn more about what makes our oil stand out among the rest.
