Gourmet Green and Kalamata Olives

Olives with lemon, vinegar and herbs

The olive production in the terroir of Sakellaropoulos organic farms, in Sparta, Laconia, since 1992, is treated as a quality act, with respect to the long tradition of the land and the care of the ecosystem.

At the Sakellaropoulos organic farms, the first Greek single estate terroir with certified organic farming, vertical production and approved packaging with Greek and international standards has been created.

The special gourmet Gousto olives are a very innovative creation with peculiarities and a high degree of difficulty in its completion.

Olives of two different varieties simultaneously exist in the same jar and with specific proportions, small Green olives and large Kalamata variety olives, with "opposite" flavors, but also ingredients that are rarely combined together, vinegar and lemon, accompanied by coriander and aromatic Greek tea.

The amazing tasting point of Gousto gourmet olives is the moment they will be tasted, where a surprise comes, a delicious experience of what creation really means.

When tasting the green olives, the lemon prevails with the bitterness of the green, unripe olives, while when tasting the Kalamata olives, their ripe, fruity taste emerges together with the vinegar, although both types of olives coexist simultaneously in the same jar with lemon and vinegar.

This culinary innovation emerged after many years of testing and is a wonderful taste experience, unprecedented and definitely unique.

Gousto gourmet olives are considered one of the top expressions of creation of Sakellaropoulos organic farms, belonging to their premium series "Gourmet Olives", as they have superior organoleptic characteristics.

They are one of the functional olive products (functional foods) of our organic farms, with a concentration of health-protective substances, but also distinctions in international competitions of taste and quality.

olives black and green gourmet bio gousto greek organic unpasteurized kalamataThey combine the authentic, pure taste of Kalamata olives and the special taste of unripe Green olives, with their specialized natural way of processing, based on tradition and scientific monitoring, with minimal addition of salt but also with a unique combination of earthy flavors of delicate coriander, of the scentful tea, with wonderful vinegar and notes of lemon juice and lemon peel.

Their production methodology is innovative; it starts exclusively from our organic farms and that is why they are characterized by the international term single estate olives.

There is complete management during their handmade collection at the appropriate stage of ripening of both varieties, with simultaneous triple quality sorting before going through the process of many months of natural fermentation, within a few hours of harvesting the olives.

Significant effect on their high quality has their non-thermal processing (pasteurization) at any stage, from harvest to final packaging.

The Gousto table gourmet olives by Sakellaropoulos organic farms are 100% natural, and are not processed or artificially colored, like the usual olives on the market. At the same time, no intervention is made in their physical form, such as the deconstructive "slitting" or the violent "cracking" or their exposure to the sun and the air, as in the usual olives of the market.

Another important difference is that in Gousto gourmet olives, the salt content is at very low levels, throughout the fermentation process and in the final packaging of the olives, at a rate of less than 50% of the average salt content of the olives that are on the market.

They are produced without chemical additives, without artificial preservatives and without pasteurization. No sodium hydroxide, ferrous gluconate or other chemicals are used during the debittering process, which destroy many of the beneficial components of the olive and the substances that promote the development of high aromatic and taste characteristics.

The result is a "live" food with wonderful natural aromas and excellent taste.

Apart from the rich health-protective ingredients, the unique identity of the premium series "Gourmet Olives" and especially of Gousto olives is defined by their taste profile, which is of very high quality.

They belong to the international category "excellent olives", they have many characteristics that give them excellent taste personality, fruity olive aroma, low salt content, proper firmness and percussive crunch.

The delicious palette of Gousto olives is completed by the slight bitterness, the rich fibrous texture, the spicy notes in the taste, the freshness and the refined aromas.

Their identity is completed with a prolonged aftertaste, in which the ingredients that accompany them contribute harmoniously, with predominantly lemon and vinegar, together with the organic extra virgin olive oil from our organic farms.

The combination of aromatic herbs and their proportion in all stages of production of Gousto olives is an innovation, a delicious "secret" of Sakellaropoulos organic farms.

The wonderful coriander, which is one of the fine herbs, is complemented by the charismatic vinegar embraced by the flowery notes of lemon, by its juice and peel, in the presence of the organic olive oil of our production.

The final character in Gousto olives is given by the health beneficial tea, the Greek tea, which is included in the herbs with the international term fine herb. The characteristic aromas and the fine taste of the tea lead the culinary pleasure of the Gousto olives to another level of approach of the earthly gifts of Nature.
