Made in the sun-drenched hills of Abruzzo, Cinquina Oven Baked olives are first drained of their natural brine, marinated in sunflower oil and then oven-roasted for a pleasant, nutty flavor. A unique antipasti accompaniment and a delightful table olive.
When it comes to olives, most people either love them or hate them but, unless you’ve tried them dehydrated, you’re not qualified to make your final decision.
Olives are small, pitted fruits related to mangoes and peaches, though they taste nothing alike. They’re highly nutritious and very popular in the Mediterranean diet, but most olive grown commercially are used to produce olive oil.
Oven baked olives are very different than brined olives, mellow in flavor, lighter in weight. We take ours hiking but also serve them ahead of a meal.
These are addicting.
They were excellent!
