Chili Marinated Kalamata Olives Made By “The Byron Bay Olive Company”
We dress our olives with a Chilli & “herbs de Provence” marinade. You will taste the perfect combination of these herbs along at any moment of the day !
Even those who don’t enjoy spicy food can enjoy these olives. The spices combine to evoke the flavours of the south of France with just a hint of chilli in the final bite.
Finally, to add dimension to the flavours, we add jalapeños and black pepper to complete the marinade.
Yes this marinade has always been a classic in the family. Back in France, at Sanary sur Mer, it was and is still one of the favourite from our customers.
You will enjoy it as olive table but not only. It will be the perfect agreement for yours :
- cheese or antipasti platters…
- baked fish or meats
Following traditional family process we reduce to the maximum the salty or bitter taste.
Most of the time olives are process with vinegar. We don’t want vinegar !
So we apply a natural treatment to rinse our olives before marinade them. It will deliver you a nice and smooth flavour that you could not find in a classic olive table.
