Perfect for tapas and appetizer plates, these assorted Spanish olives are great for parties, catered events, and food service. Manzanilla, Gordal, Alorena, Black Empletre, and Arbequina olives make up this mix jarred in brine.
Manzanilla olives from Andalucia, also known as "Spanish olives," are small to medium in size and are greenish brown in color with a firm, meaty texture and slight almond taste. They are often used in antipasti platters and are sometimes added to cooked dishes like arroz con pollo. Manzanilla Olives contain many minerals and vitamins; especially carotenes, and also contain a lot of fiber.
"Gorda" means "fat" in Spanish which is where Gordals get their name. They are large firm, plump green olives and are meaty with a mild flavor.
Alorena olives from Malaga are slightly smaller than the Gordal variety and have very rich flavor profile. They have a free stone that comes away easily from the flesh.
Black Empeltre Olives are picked ripe and cured for 12-14 months. They have a high nutritional value in unsaturated fats and a good deal of fiber. They have a very sweet taste that makes them irresistible.
Arbequina olives are probably the smallest variety of olives in the world. They are hand picked and only the best fruits are selected for table use. Arbequina olives are deal for a snack, appetizer, or salads.
