These cracked olives from Monte da Colónia are made in a simple brine and can be flavoured according to your taste.
It's a delicious and healthy food that is enjoyed all over the Mediterraneans.
When the olives are very fresh the fastest way to get flavour is to tread them. This way the seasoning can get inside the olive faster. The olives are a bit bitter and are generally flavoured with garlic, oregano and olive oil but one can also use lemon, cumin, or other spices to create the perfect snack.
Try yourself and figure out which seasoning works the best for you!
Cracked olives are a good source of healthy fats, fiber, and a variety of vitamins and minerals. They are particularly rich in vitamin E, which is an antioxidant that helps to protect cells from damage. Olives are also known to contain polyphenols, which are plant compounds that have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.
Note: these olives may be a bit bitter (by nature) but if you remove the brine and soak them in freash water, they are ready for creating your own flavoured olives!
