Olives Straight from Greece September 29 2017
We’ve been working with Hellenic Farms, an importer of specialty Greek Foods since we opened. They are the importer of the delicious FIVE Olive Oil from World Excellent Products. When we wanted to add olives to our marketplace it made sense to see what Vivianna at Hellenic Farms had to offer and we weren’t disappointed. The team at Hellenic Farms recently started producing their own line of olives and we are thrilled to have them as part of our marketplace.
The Pitted Kalamata Olives are in a large variety in a vinegar brine. They are harvested by hand in the fall and naturally cured to keep their exceptional taste and premium quality. Kalamata Olives are a staple of Greek Cuisine, found commonly in a Greek Salad but also paired with fish. Here is a great recipe for Olive Chocolate Tapenade using Kalamata Olives. It is super quick and will impress your guests!
The Greek Green Olives from Hellenic Farms are of the Chalkidiki variety. They are premium quality olives from the groves in Northern Greece and are also harvested by hand. These green olives are firm in texture and mild in flavor. Hellenic Farms ensures they are carefully processed to maintain their nutritional value and distinctive taste. Green Olives are great snack but also perfect in a martini.
I always have a jar of each of these olives in my pantry. They are perfect to put out for an unexpected guest or add to the latest dish I am cooking. I hope you’ll enjoy them too.
