These garlic stuffed manzanillo olives are grown and cured in small batches in Spain’s Seville region and they represent a real delicacy; these olives are carefully selected, stuffed with pickled garlic and packed in a mild brine, so the salt does not overwhelm the pure olive flavor. Artisans carefully stuff small, whole, pickled garlic cloves into each olive. The pickled garlic is sweet and crunchy. The garlic cloves are peeled and pickled in wine vinegar before being packed, one-by-one, into manzanillo olives. The pickling preserves the firm, crunchy texture of the garlic, and creates a perfect contrast with the meaty olives.
These olives are great in salads, hors-d’oeuvres, and cocktails. You can also add them to your favorite pasta or pizza! Olives are jarred in a salt, water and vinegar marinade. Best served chilled.
