Tip on Extra Virgin Olive Oil

A couple of months ago I watched an episode of Steven and Chris and one of their guests, Theresa Albert (Nutritionist), was talking about healthy eating habits from around the world.  When they got to Greece, extra virgin olive oil was mentioned.  Theresa explained that there's a variety of olive oil being sold in the grocery stores today that claim to be extra virgin.  She said the way to know if the olive oil you just bought really is extra virgin, is to put it in the refrigerator overnight.  If it solidifies, it's extra virgin.   If it remains a liquid, it's not the good stuff.  (By the way, the oil will go back to a liquid state once back at room temperature).
