Spain grows more than twice as many olives as the next largest global producer and processes them into olive oil and table olives. There are a huge number of olive varieties amongst which the most popular table varieties include Manzanilla, Verdial and Picual.
These Gordal olives are green, crisp and fleshy with a touch of heat from the guindilla chillies in the marinade.
Great Taste Award Winner 2020:
"These large, beautifully green olives are tangy and delicious. The brine has a bright, acetic aroma and the piquancy of the peppers fills the air. The flesh is firm, with a notably buttery texture for a pitted olive and the gentle salinity lifts the natural sweetness. The heat from the peppers is gentle but builds into a fiery finish that is long lasting. A delicious easy to eat olive."
Serving suggestion: Stuff with orange segments.
Also available in a 600g tin and 2kg Tin for parties.
