The black olives of Caceres are known around the world as one of the best black olives. Full of flavor and easy to package, they are enjoyed by millions of people world-wide. Thanks to Serpis, we now have access to these sought after olives which are as delicious as they are versatile.
Black olives have a far subtler flavor than green olives. They have less salt and less acid which makes them less tangy than green olives. They have been allowed to fully ripen, whereas green olives are picked while they are still green. By allowing the olive to fully ripen, this allows the flavor and oils of the olive to fully develop, providing a satisfying bite.
What can one use black olives for? Aside from enjoying them on their own, they work well as part of a variety of dishes. Try using them (pitted) in your next fabada asturiana for a little extra flavor.
