Spectra, I've read that the fridge test for olive oil can actually be misleading - an oil that's been mixed might still solidify in the fridge, and some pure olive oils won't solidify at all because of type of olive or when it was harvested, etc. I guess YMMV on that one. But I do always smell the oil before using. Like peanut butter, it's got a distinct smell when it goes bad. And like a recent poster, I don't call it EVOO, either, but primarily because I think it sounds ridiculous. As I said: olive oil snob. :) I suppose there are worse kinds of snobs to be. Most people don't know this about me, btw. Thanks for letting me geek out here a little about it.
