Get ready to taste the most addictive, healthy, and delicious olives you've ever tried. Cured solely with 100% Aegean sea salt, without acids, chemicals, lye, no heat, no potassium, not even vinegar is added. These fruity delicious olives just finished a six month process in wooden barrels packed with sea salt. Each week the olives were rolled and turned by hand to ensure even curing, then the olives were sun-dried to concentrate their flavors. This type of naturally cured olive is not usually available in the US. The olives are perfect as part of a meze appetizer plate, or just as an afternoon snack while relaxing in the shade.Iliades is a Father-Son team, making oil and table olives from the family's own olive trees in Northern Greece.
