Black Olives

Green Valley

 

Spanish black olives are olives which have been allowed to fully ripen in the tree before harvesting. They tend to have a different flavour from more immature green olives and they can be cured in a variety of ways for different uses and flavour profiles. This olive plays an integral role in the cuisine of may Mediterranean nations.
