Olive pâté: a delicious Andalusian delicacy

As good lovers of the Mediterranean cuisinein Escamilla Olives we are fans of olive pâté. Today we wanted to show you the classic olive recipe for which we have used verdiales olives.

Although this olive pâté you can make it with any other type of olive, but we recommend the verdial olive. Why? It is a fairly fatty varietyThis results in a very unctuous olive. In addition, we have a weakness for its taste sweet, fruity and slightly spicy. A point in favour of this olive is that it is long and large, so removing the stone can be easy.

As we told you, making olive paste at home can be somewhat cumbersome because of the fact that the olives have to be pitted. But we can make the olive pâté with our own selection of olives. In this type of recipe, the raw material is everything in order to obtain a good result. Those of us who live in Spain are fortunate enough to be able to produce high quality olives.
