green orga­nic olives from Chalkidiki

The­se green orga­nic olives grow in Greece on the pen­in­su­la of Chal­ki­di­ki in orga­nic groves.
The har­vest is done by gent­le manu­al labor. The olives are then packed into boxes and taken to the pro­ces­sing plants.
In the pro­ces­sing plants, the olives are sor­ted by varie­ty and size, trans­por­ted by con­veyors for washing, and then stored in lar­ge tanks with brine.
In the­se tanks the Kala­ma­ta olives fer­ment for about six months.

Greek olives and the brine

The tra­di­tio­nal pro­ces­sing of olives was done by hand. The olives, some­ti­mes har­ve­s­ted by the thousands, were was­hed, clea­ned, indi­vi­du­al­ly scored, optio­nal­ly pit­ted and final­ly pick­led. By pla­cing the olives in bri­ne, the olives lose much of their natu­ral bit­ter­ness. This is the only way they are edi­ble at all. The natu­ral fla­vor of an unpro­ces­sed oli­ve is most­ly one of incom­pa­ra­b­ly inten­si­ve bitterness.

Note: The bit­ter­ness of the oli­ve is nevertheless an important indi­ca­ti­on of its ingre­dient rich­ness. Thus, it is pre­cise­ly the phe­nols and poly­phe­nols that pro­mo­te health and diges­ti­on that tas­te bit­ter. The goal of pick­ling the olives is to balan­ce the­se fla­vor pro­per­ties and so to bring out the diver­si­ty of the other natu­ral aromas.

Greek olives — What offers OEL?

Our Greek olives under the name OELives, tog­e­ther with the OEL­pes­to, were the first expan­si­on of OEL’s pro­ducts sin­ce its foun­da­ti­on. The fla­vor­ful inter­play, con­sis­ting of a slight­ly sal­ty note, plea­s­ant­ly bit­ter nuan­ces and a fine spi­ci­ness, makes the­se olives a ver­sa­ti­le companion.

A litt­le side note: Our green orga­nic olives are par­ti­cu­lar­ly coope­ra­ti­ve when they meet our OEL. The two are united by an inti­ma­te friendship. Vir­tual­ly from the tree to the plate.

Greek olives — the ubi­qui­tous ingredient

Olives are one of the basics of Greek cui­sine. Olives are one of the basics of Greek cui­sine. Olives are the small incon­spi­cuous ingre­dient that makes a big difference.

This is cer­tain­ly due to the fact that the natu­ral bit­ter sub­s­tan­ces in olives pro­mo­te diges­ti­on, sti­mu­la­te the appe­ti­te and boost the meta­bo­lism. They are the­re­fo­re ide­al as a culi­na­ry intro­duc­tion to a rich menu or as a small diges­ti­ve aid during the meal.
