The mammoth olives are huge, averaging around 3cm in length and 2cm in thickness.
"Tsakistes" as cracked olives are known in Greek are cured using an old traditional recipe whereby the firm green flesh of the olive is cracked then marinated in oil mixed with oregano, garlic and lemon. The process imparts a fruity and refreshing taste, crunchy flesh and lemon scent.
