The world famous Kalamon olive variety is grown only in specific areas of Greece, especially in the Peloponnese region around the city of Kalamata. It has a characteristic pointed shape, purple color, and full-bodied taste while it is packaged in brine with vinegar to provide for a tasty & healthy snack - better known as the "queen" of edible olives. The pits are removed with the use of a special machine with controls in place to ensure they have all been taken out. Eat them on their own as a snack, add in salads or accompany cocktails and aperitifs. Perfect on toasted bread as bruschetta with a glass of wine or add on top of pizza or pasta for that extra taste.
