Table Olives and Dukkah

After a lot of experimenting to find something we were happy with, we have started producing Tuscan flavoured table olives. These have subtle lemon and thyme flavours. The olives are Kalamata olives marinated in our own oil and flavoured with lemon oil and herbs.

When you have finished the olives, the oil is delicious with seafood or in a dressing. A wide range of vegetables benefit from the addition of the flavours of the oil when roasting, if you’re after something special.

Years ago, my mother suggested we made Dukkah, to complement the olive oils, but I had never found a recipe I liked enough to make myself. Finally I did, so we have added Egyptian Dukkah to our range. It has a roasted hazelnut base with a variety of seeds, and spices added to make a mix which is delicious when bread that has been dipped in our oil is then dipped in the Dukkah or it can be sprinkled over salads and dips.

The Table Olives and Dukkah are available in limited amounts over the summer period from the grove. If you would like to visit the grove and taste the new range, please email me or phone (03 5432434) to arrange a suitable time. For online orders, please email me for courier costs.
