Edremit Green Crushed Olive

Edremit Green Crushed Olive 


Oil-type Edremit olives are collected from our groves when the olives are green in October and November. They are categorized according to their sizes, selected and cleaned on machines. After they are crushed, they are put into wide olive tanks.  The tanks are fully filled with potable water and the covers are closed. It stays in its own water for 15-20 days and then we change the water. After 15-20 days in the second water, the water is again changed, this process removes the preliminary bitterness of the olive. Thirdly, brine prepared with a mixture of marine salt and salts of lemon is poured and left to natural fermentation. It is circulated once in approximately 15 days to ensure salt balance. Because the olives are crushed, they get ready to be eaten in approximately 3-4 months. The fermented olives are taken from the brine, the squashed grains are removed and cleaned. The mixture of salt and salts of lemon, prepared as permanent brine, is poured into the olives which are packaged. Permanent brine is prepared with 100 C boiling water to ensure pasteurization and hygiene. It poured into the packaged product at this temperature and the covers are closed. 


Keep our olives in brine in a cool and dark place.
