Unmistakably olive and often enjoyed by people who don’t eat olives.
Black Olive paste has a high oil content, caused by the riper olives. The flavours can be used to enhance the taste of other ingredients like cheese, cold meats and vegetables.

Cured olives are de-pipped and crushed to form a smooth paste which
is dipped with Mardouw’s Extra Virgin olive oil and seasoned sea salt, garlic and lemon.
The black olive spread can be eaten in various ways. No matter whether you eat it as a spread on freshly baked bread, spread onto a pizza base with or instead of the tomato topping, or if you add it to a pasta sauce, it will enrich your dish. Black paste also makes a good substitute for mint sauce with roast lamb.
