 BLACK OLIVES OF CHALKIDIKI – “ALMADES”

 

The variety "Chondroelia Chalkidiki" is world famous for its thick, juicy fruit.  This is why it is considered to be a top table olive.

The name “Almades" is due to its natural processing purely with salt and without additional chemical preservatives.  The Almades are harvested after maturing on the trees having acquired their characteristic dark color.

Following the natural treatment with the addition only of salt, the fruit acquires a thin peel and the fruity taste that makes them unique.

 

CRUSHED GREEN OLIVES

 

These are harvested in September. After selecting and sorting according to size the olives are crushed.

Traditionally the olives were crushed with a stone, but due to the large quantities, this is now done with a special crushing machine.

Once this process has been completed, the olives are placed in barrels with water where after several changes (of water) the olives lose their bitterness and finally with the use of brine (water with sea salt), they mature over the next 3 months – the required time for consumption.

Available packages: 13Kg metal container, glass jar 200gr.
