Order olives from Kitchencorner
The olive is a real all-rounder - and it is very healthy. It is excellent in antipasti, refines Mediterranean salads, rounds off fish and meat dishes and also fits perfectly on pizza. Even in ancient times people knew that olives are not only healthy, but also rich in nutrients, vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Besides, the cultivation is not particularly difficult. By the way, olives are not considered a vegetable but a fruit, because they grow on so-called long-lived trees. As a rule, we do not eat the olive until it has been pickled in brine for some time; raw, the fruit is sometimes somewhat bitter. When you order olives at Kitchencorner, your Swiss online shop for delicacies, you can choose between pickled black and green olives.

By the way: Black and green olives are not different varieties. They are always the same variety, only the time of harvest is different. While green olives are harvested early, the others are left hanging until they are ripe and have acquired their black colour. This circumstance also affects the taste. The green olives are usually firmer in bite as well as more acidic and generally taste more like the fruit itself. Black olives are a bit more hearty and have a wonderful light bitterness. Our purple olives develop a very unique taste.
All olives from our assortment are pickled in excellent brine or fresh olive oil, some varieties are seasoned with herbs such as rosemary, laurel and thyme.
