Halkidiki Green Olives – Ouzomeze
Green Halkidiki Olives are world famous and naturally produced in abundance in the region of Halkidiki. With them we create wonderful combinations with Oregano, Sweet or Hot Peppers, as well as with a variety of ingredients that contribute to a spicy mix, known as Ouzomeze.
They have an oval shape and a yellow-green color, a slightly acidic taste and a fruity aroma.
During the harvest, we pick one by one in September and October.
The olive has 74% water, 1% protein, as well as vitamins and minerals. It also contains monounsaturated acids which, proven by studies, reduce cardiovascular diseases, inflammation and blood pressure.
Ouzomezes is a combination of Green Halkidiki Olives and spices. Laurel, Oregano, Jalapeno, Garlic, Lemon, Dill and Hot Pepper contribute to creating a spicy experience to accompany your drink. However, we choose Ouzo Alexandridis from 100% distillation!
It accompanies the Greek salad and is an ideal appetizer for a healthy diet. Also, you can create wonderful combinations with oregano, hot pepper flakes, coriander, rosemary and other Mediterranean herbs.
How to Use & Serving Suggestion
- First, remove the desired amount of olives from the package, in a deep plate or bowl.
- Then we add some Extra Virgin Olive Oil, mix them so that it goes everywhere – and if we want – any other spice of our liking such as oregano, bukovo or some other ingredient such as lemon, vinegar, yogurt, or even soy sauce.
- Have fun and stay healthy!
