Kalamon variety of olives, with the juicy, tasty flesh are sun-ripened, picked at the black stage of maturity, carefully selected and preserved in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Philippos Hellenic Goods proposes the Premium GourmetBox which includes 4 packs of 95 g.
The olive tree of Kalamata, Olea Europea Kalamon, is a former cultivar of Kalamata, a strong olive producing area in the Gulf of Messinia, Peloponnese, and has widely spread today to the neighbouring regions. The characteristics of the fruit, the dark purple colour, and the tasty, juicy flesh, make Kalamon the ideal table olives.
The olive may be served as an aperitif and is a nutritious snack, enriching salads, and giving a Mediterranean, summer touch to sauces; they also are an essential ingredient in many recipes.
Philippos Hellenic Goods offers its olives preserved in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This is not a detail. Once collected and washed to "debitter", the olives are preserved in salt water. Only later will they be packed in brine or oil. They will remain there until they are ready to be served. The choice of using Extra Virgin Olive Oil makes the product slightly more expensive but ensures the preservation of all its organoleptic properties: intense dark, shiny colour entices tasting; biting the firm texture releases all the flavour of the fruit and a delicate hint of bitterness. PHILIPPOS HELLENIC GOODS Kalamata Olives easily appeals to connoisseurs and amateurs alike, who enjoy the full raw Mediterranean flavours.
The vacuum packaging preserves the quality over time. The 95 g sachet ensures prompt use of the product once opened; olives can thus be appreciated in all their fragrance.
Olives have a nutritional value similar to that of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. They are rich in fatty acids and antioxidants that have a positive effect on cholesterol metabolism and also prevent cardiovascular disease.
