This aromatic golden oil is made in the Valle des Baux, in beautiful Provence, France. Made from a single cold-pressing of five different types of olives of the region, Arnaud’s Vallee des Baux de Provence Extra Virgin Olive Oil combines intense Salonenques and Picholine, fruity and aromatic Aglandau and Grossanes, and sweet Verdales olives. The result is a stunning golden-green oil with a fruit-like flavor with notes of hazelnuts and almonds, and a fragrance of artichokes. Vallee des Baux de Provence Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made by Arnaud Olives, a family-owned company since 1947. A 100% all-natural product. Don’t use this beauty for cooking, but rather savor its full flavor by using it cold on salads, drizzled on grilled meats and vegetables, or for dipping bread.
Each aloreña olive is cracked before the curing process. The traditional natural brine is made of water and salt, and the crack facilitates the natural fermentation. The crack and firm texture of this olive also makes it very fitting for custom marinades. The aloreña olive, also known as Malagueña in certain areas, is the only olive from Spain with a D.O., Denomination of Origin. Curing Method: Natural Brine Cured; Time of Harvest: End of August
Imagine a savory version of a perfect cherry. That is what these olives are like. Firm to the bite, round and perfect, with a meaty flesh and a pit that bursts out easily as a cherry-pit. If you eat one, it will be difficult for you to resist eating at least ten.
