More Information
Raw material Baked olives of the variety Majatica, processed in an artisan way, according an old recipe of the area of Ferrandina
Appearance The color is bright black, while their skin is wrinkly due to the baking process; the bite is succulent, soft and rich
Taste Sweet, with a pleasant aroma of licorice; the baking process enhances the natural salty taste of the olives, but at the same time maintains the particularly sweet taste of Majatica variety
Curiosity The olives Majatica di Ferrandina, known as Majatica' or 'Pasola, are cultivars which give a particular golden and green-nuanced oil while their Olives are dried in kilns and enjoyed as natural black or pickled Ferrandina Baked Olives - baked olives of the variety Majatica - are a very typical product of Ferrandina, which became also a Slow Food Presìdium.
Our selection Production is currently declining drastically because of a shortage of the main ingredient, as almost all Majatica olives are used to make oil; only a few producers of baked olives still remain in Ferrandina; the Presidium wants to work with them to re-launch the traditional processing technique, described in historic 18th-century sources, which has only partially been adapted to modern times and technologies
Suggestions Perfect pairing with southern salumi like Materana Mountain Pezzente and with matured pecorino; it is also used in orange salads or in pumpkin soup or even with baccala; delicious on their own simply dressed with a Majatica extravirgin olive oil, fresh garlic, orange and lemon peels
