Imported from Apulia, Cerignolas are the largest olives in the world. Named after the town Cerignola in the Foggia province, these olives have long been prized by gourmands. Cerignolas have a fruity, mild, clean taste, but their most impressive feature is their size and resulting meatiness. Biting into a Cerignola is almost like biting into a plum. Deep jade green in color, serve them as an appetizer with cocktails. These green Cerignolas are naturally ripened on the tree, giving them a firm bite and perfect texture without mushiness. Our favorite way of enjoying Cerignolas is to toss them in olive oil and serve with a scattering of sliced basil strips. These olives come packaged beautifully in a keepsake Italian glass jar with mini-handles on either side.
