Old olive uses....


Anyone out there with good ideas on how to use 10 liters of old (semi rancid) extra virgin olive oil. I need to get rid of the stuff. I thought I'd put it in a lamp or something but people tell it will not burn. The stuff is not very palatable. Could I use it in the garden?

    1. Just don't ingest it. I was told by a vendor that your could get food poisoning from old oil.

        Mmm if that was true than I already would have been dead ;-) Biodiesel sounds good, only problem my car is on Methano.......

      2. If you have kids, they can learn about ancient egyptian mummification techniques and make their own mummies out of dollar-store dolls. OK it's a little weird, but I would hate for it to go to waste.

        1. it will burn. but it will also smoke like crazy. leaves a peculiar odor.

          1. Olive Oil Soap. Scroll down in this link for the recipe ... maybe u can add a fragrance to it.
