Confit Olives

The top Black Oxidised selection.

Confit olives are also known as 'California ripped olives' and their basic characteristic is their absolutely black colour.

Our premium Confit olives, combine great sweetness with a non-metallic taste.

Character

Confit olives have a firm texture, glossy skin and a smooth, sweet taste.  

Their low salt content is what grants them the highest consumption in the world.

Curing process

Once approved and delivered, the olives are processed in a lye curing solution which leaches the bitterness out. When curing is completed, a series of cold water rinses removes every trace of curing solution. During the curing process, which lasts several days, a flow of air bubbling through the olives produces their natural rich dark colour. A trace of organic iron salt is then added to act as a colour fixer, so that the olives will have a decreased tendency to fade after the cans are stored. Finally, olives are canned in a mild salt brine and, because they are low in acid, they are heat sterilised under strict health rules.

We take great pride in the fact that we have a proprietary recipe for maintaining a low percentage in iron, which removes the typical metallic taste from our confit olives range.
