Olives Kalamata violet, with pit in brine

Kalamata' olives are characterized by their aromatic flavor and their multi-colored skin. The color intensity of the olives varies depending on their exposure to the sun and the place where they grow on the olive tree. Skin colors may range from dark pink, purple to brown or ebony. The olives are cultivated with tender care by small peasant farmers in mountainous areas of Southern Peloponnese (Greece) and are manually harvested. They are then pitted and traditionally pickled in brine.

ideal for antipasti, with salads or as tapa served with wine - as well as for noodle dishes and sauces, as pizza topping or for bread baking.

Additional information

The olives are manually picked. Harvest-fresh olives are very bitter and inedible. Therefore, the olives are stored in water and sea salt for several months in great, big barrels in order to remove the bitter substances. For dark olives, the de-bittering process takes longer than for green olives. Finally, the olives are filled in glass jars in a brine with water, wine vinegar and sea salt. For preservation, the olives are heated.
