Chicken dishes are also complimented nicely with the salty tangy addition from the olives. Pasta dishes such as Pasta Primavera or a Cold Noodle Dish will get even more heavenly with Kalamon olives.

They are of course a key ingredient in the Greek salad (Horiatiki) and they are a staple item in the Greek households! They are also commonly used in olive tapenades and other mixed olive & herbs spreads.

Other interesting information

Kalamon olives are named after Kalamata; atown in southern Greece, where they originated. Kalamon olives have been around for over five thousand years, since ancient Greek times. They are easily recognizable with their oval shape and dark purple coloring – not to mention their intense, full-bodied flavor. These olives are hand-harvested to avoid bruising when they are extremely ripe in the late fall. If a perfect balance is not struck, the olives will taste bitter if harvested too early or lose all flavor if harvested too late.

Kalamon olives in the raw form are bitter and would not be eaten until they are soaked in brine. This process creates a fermentation process that can take up to a few months. At the end of the brining process, they are complete with their rich, meaty flavor
