About our products
Each of our oil varieties have very different and unique flavours, colours and aromas, which is why we decided to bottle our oil seperatly rather than blending. This allows you to taste and apperiate each variety and learn the difference between them. We feel it is best left up to each individual consumer to decide for themselves which flavour best suits their taste or cooking requirements. All our oils are tested on a regular basis using an Oxitesting machine. This machine is a laboratory approved oil testing peice of equipment and tests acidity, polyphenols and peroxide levels.
Infusing opens up a whole new world of oils to try. Infused olive oil has the same characteristics as other olive oils and the same if not more health benefits. There are safe and unsafe ways to infuse oils. The unsafe way is to add anything into the oil that contains water or moisture, which is why we only add dried product and cold pressed pure essential oils.
May we suggest a few ways you might like to try our infused oils.
-Warm for dipping
-Drizzle over pasta, fish or chicken
-Use as a salad dressing
-Pour over baby patatoes with fresh ground pepper and salt YUM!
All our table olives are hand picked so as to avoid bruising. After they have been sorted and graded they are placed in large air tight brinning barrels where they are cured in a salt brine. This brining process draws the bitterness from the fruit, and this may take several months. The barrels are stored in a temperature controlled facility and the salt and PH levels are monitored reguraly. All water used at our processing plant is purified through a double charcoal filter and UV light filtration system. Boiling water alone will not kill the harmful bacteria which can cause food poisoning, only a UV light filtration system will kill salmonella. We feel the method we use produces a more nutritrious and better flavoured table eating olive.
Spreads, Jams and other
After many years of processing olives and playing around with different ideas I have discovered that olives love to obsorb whatever they are submerged in. We have devolped some very different and unique olive spreads, jams and sweet salty olives. Imagine this...... take our premium olives and soak them in various liguers, then blend them with other taste bud tempting ingredients and you are left with the most delicious treat to add to any chesse platter. Or even better, how about a chocolate coated or sweet salty olive to share with friends over coffee after dinner.
