All our olive varieties use 'Green Olives' from Chalkidiki (or Halkidiki) which is an area of Northern Greece, near the Aegean Sea, with excellent climatic conditions and fertile soil. The region is just north west of Mount Athos and olive trees have been cultivated here for centuries. Most Chalkidiki Olives are large, pale green and oval in shape. They are usually harvested while still young and processed through brine curing which results in a firm meaty texture that gives a full flavour with a little tartness and a slight peppery taste.
A key part of the healthy Mediterranean diet, loaded with important nutrients and antioxidants. No preservatives. Drained weight 1kg. Vacuum-sealed for freshness. You can store our olives for up to 30 days after opening in the fridge, if placed in a liquid mixture of olive oil and vinegar. The olives will retain their excellent taste and high nutritional value. If you would like to decrease the saltiness of your olives then soak them for 2 hours in a bowl of freshwater. Then replace the water with clean water, and let them soak for two more hours.
