Frequently asked questions about Peasant Olives

How do you pair Peasant Olives?

We recommend consuming peasant olives as they appear, without further processing. The intense flavor of the olives, due to the seasoning with typical Sicilian aromas and the preservation in Frantoi Cutrera extra virgin olive oil, makes them special. They can be placed on a cheese and cured meat platter, accompanied by gourmet bruschetta or pitted and inserted into fresh and original salads or sandwiches. The preservation oil is the precious Frantoi Cutrera extra virgin olive oil and can be reused as an aromatic condiment for other bruschettas, for salads or simply on bread.

How are Peasant Olives seasoned?

There are many Sicilian varieties of peasant olives, we chose the family one, the recipe that our grandparents kept in their pantries and which they used to prepare our Sunday family lunches. The scent of mint and fennel that emanates from the bowl and the taste of the oil in which to dip the bread are still very vivid memories for us. In addition to these two wild herbs, our recipe also includes the addition of parsley, oregano, garlic and chilli pepper.

What are the ingredients of Sicilian artichoke hearts?

For our artichoke hearts we only use Sicilian "Violetto" artichokes, a typical variety grown in various areas of the island and in particular in the south-eastern ones. To these we add, during processing, Frantoi Cutrera extra virgin olive oil (Biancolilla variety) and typical aromatic herbs that go well with the artichoke, i.e. oregano, spicy chilli pepper and mint.
