Arbequina Olives by La Masrojana
Spanish Arbequina is the small and tasty olive that has been cultivated in Priorat for more than a thousand years. As all the products from the Priorat region, this olive shows off its concentration and clarity of tastes and flavors. The farmers start the olive harvesting task at the end of September or at the beginning of October.

Once the olives are in La Masrojana's facilities, they select them depending on their size and color. La Masrojana only uses the olives that have reached the peak of ripeness. Any olive that does not fulfill the quality requirements is not accepted. Then they put the olives in large earthenware jars and macerate them with salt, water and aromatic herbs. This process is controlled every week. After a few months, the olives are ready to bottle. La Masrojana bottle their products by hand. To give you some recipe ideas, arbequina olive can be used to dress salads, for appetizers, or even to have with breakfast. The typical Catalan snack consists of smearing tomatoes with bread, then serving it with sausage and olives.
