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, before the olives are mechanically sliced. Add in salads, on top of pizza or pasta for that extra taste. Use them for creating Mediterranean pasta or meat sauces.
