Olives & Olive Oil

Olives and olive oil are an essential part of Mediterranean culture and have been cultivated for thousands of years by Mediterranean peoples for food and fuel. In fact, Athens was named for the goddess Athena to honor her gift of the olive tree to the city’s residents!

Olive oil is a healthy choice for cooking, as it has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which can help lower “bad” (LDL) cholesterol. Extra virgin olive oil is made from the first cold press of the olive. While the taste varies depending on the area and type of olive, olive oils are renowned for their ability to add a deeply fragrant depth-of-flavor to most sauces, fried foods, soups, and salads.
