Did you know that olives are one of the oldest cultivated fruits? Yea, neither did I. But that is not important right now. What is important is that we have some really special new olives in stock. Although we have had these in before many of you may not yet know them. Meski olives are a medium sized olive common in Tunisia. Their flavour is mild and make a very high quality olive oil. We have two kinds of Meski olive in stock right now. The first is cured and then packed in EVOO with harissa, a slighty spicy pepper mix, the second is cured and packed in fresh brine flavored with lemon and fennel. The last olive is called Sahli and is very similar to the French nicoise olive. While small in size it packs big flavor. It’s pretty meaty for its size too. Like all of the olives we carry these tend to be on the less salty side and a bit more true olive flavor. Please come in for a taste, you won’t be disappointed. Cheers.
