    Yes, it is hard to find good and cheap price olive oil. Therefore, we start to plant our own olive trees and cue them for eating.

    Finding quality and true olive oil is difficult enough. But I'm looking for the light-tasting but pure olive oil to use in making homemade mayo. Does anyone have any advice or favored brands for that purpose?
    Thanks in advance.

Thing is we bought them at Wally Mart which isn't exactly known for fine cuisine! We do buy the more expensive named brands though so I'm hoping they are pure O.O.
    No, they won't be listed. Olive oil is absolutely riddled with corruption. I would recommend reading Extra Virginity... that was a really good book. Buying more expensive doesn't guarantee you're getting pure olive oil, but buying cheap does virtually guarantee you're not.
