The Old-World, Rustic Taste of Sicily
Mantova Etna Crushed Olives are all-natural, non-GMO, high-quality Nocellara Etnea olives, also known as Augghialora, Paturnisa and Tortorella, cultivated and hand-picked from the sunny, volcanic olive groves of the Mount Etna of Sicily, Italy — a region celebrated for its unique, exquisite olive varietals. In a freshly preserved in a zesty brine, our Etna Crushed Olives come already pitted and are ready-to-eat. With a spicy, garlicky flavor with notes of oregano, their firm, meaty texture and reddish-green hue make them a tasty snack. Use them to complement cured meats, fresh cheeses, and dried fruits, and make charcuterie boards and antipasto platters. Drop them into a cocktail or a martini. Serve them together with oven-roasted or grilled chicken, pork, rabbit, and seafood. Toss them in salads, sauces, and dips. Add them to sandwiches, wraps, and panini. Put them on bruschetta, pizza, focaccia.
Since our Etna Crushed Olives contain monosaturated fatty acids, they are a heart-healthy, cholesterol-free source of fat, making them beneficial for the prevention of atherosclerotic plaque formation and cardiovascular pathologies. They are also both rich in polyphenols and vitamin E, anti-inflammatory antioxidants that protect the body from oxidative stress and safeguard cells against free radicals. That said, our Etna Crushed Olives are not only delicious but also healthy and suitable for most diets.
No matter how you choose to enjoy them, the piquant, slightly pungent flavor, firm texture, and reddish-green color of our Etna Crushed Olives will surely satisfy you! Buon appetito!
