Black Raisins Olives ripen while still on the tree, they have a bittersweet taste and can be eaten straight from the tree. The olives are picked when ripe and black in colour, they are washed in mountain spring water. Following a fine selection process whereby the best olives are selected, the olives are then layered in large tanks with untreated Sea salt which enables the water and bitter taste to be drawn out. Olives absorb water and if there is salt in that water they will absorb that too. In this traditional process, the water that the olives naturally release is drained, which means the olives are not sitting in their own water, therefore not absorbing the water or excess salt, yielding an olive with minimum salt and excess taste. The olives are then rinsed in spring water again before being lightly coated in cold pressed olive oil and packed in bags for minimum postage costs.
