Thanks to Serpis, olive aficionados around the world have access to these delicious olives. Manzanilla olives are thought to be the most popular olive in Spain and enjoyed around the world. The word manzanilla means ‘little apple’. The olives are given this name not only for their larger size, but because of their apple-like color. The flavor of the olive is quite salty (thanks to the brine) and a little bitter, with notes of smokiness almonds.
This delicious olive by itself is already a hit. It is further elevated thanks to it being stuffed with beautiful chorizo. Strong notes of cured pork, garlic, paprika, and saffron are added to this delicious olive. The brine itself takes on as much flavor as it imparts to the stuffed olive.
These olives can be enjoyed on their own. They work well as tapas; simply add a little extra virgin olive oil and you have a delicious tapas course. Pair this delicious olive dish with a nice Sherry.
