Akarca Farm Pitted Memecik Olives
In organic olive oil with lemon slices, pitted
Memecik Olive is a varietal unique to Milas Region in Muğla, Turkey. It leaves a nice olive feel in your mouth amongst other subtle flavors and can be considered full-bodied. Comparatively, it has higher antioxidant levels than almost all Turkish and most of the other international olive varietals. It is a mid-size olive with a slightly oval shape. The meaty part is generally attached to the pit. Because of its high oil content, a richer olive taste can be experienced when consumed.
The best Memecik olives are selected after calibration and processed with century-old Akarca Farm techniques to produce the most enjoyable olives. After appropriate time in a water & brine solution, they are left immersed in olive oil with lemon or Seville tangerine slices for a further six months until they develop their signature flavors.
In this way, during these six months, the olive fruit and olive oil keep interacting and exchanging and adding flavors, bringing each other to a perfect combination and true pinnacle of flavor and taste.
If we compare the edible olives, olive sold in a brine solution is like canned fruit and olive sold with olive oil is like fresh fruit.
