organic raw black date olives   

P. D. O.  Throumpa  Thassos

Ingredients: organic black date olives (whole), sea salt, organic extra virgin olive oil.

Our delicious organic Throumpa olives are a rich source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, minerals, essential fatty acids, dietary fiber, and vitamin E.  These unique, raw, black date olives, exclusive to the northern Aegean island of Thassos, are awarded Protected Designation of Origin status. "Throumpa" (thru-ba) olives ripen    and wrinkle on the tree, releasing some of their bitterness in the process. They are then layered in tanks with unprocessed sea salt to cure, resulting in a rich, bittersweet flavor with just a hint of salt.
