Lovely olives and not too salty

I am very pleased with these olives, delicious, moreish and far from as salty as many other olives on the market. I love olives but had stopped buying them because all varieties I bought went in the bin because they were too salty. These are finally the olives for me! I will be buying again and again. I think these are a great find and superb value for money. Might not be the best olives out there, but they are the best that I can find available and can afford!

More olives for people who don't like real olives.

Quality Kalamata olives prepared properly and kept in oil are nothing like these. The write up on these is swanky and would be upmarket, but the taste of this product is peculiarly nondescript and nothing like the glorious, fruity, salty taste of true Kalamata olives. Buy the ones Ocado sells from The Real Olive Company if you want properly tasty ones.

Mushy Olives

These were not good olives at all, and certainly will not buy them again. They were soft and mushy and not particularly tasty either

Not good

I am from Greece so I know Kalamata Olives and these are not from Kalamata. They don't taste good. I through the jar away.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

Great value

I strain the brine from these and plump them up in a jar of olive oil, adding herbs and garlic if I'm feeling creative, and they are transformed. Great to eat as they are or to add to salads, pizzas, tagines.

If you prefer lamb leg to shoulder just use this instead - the cooking times for this recipe will work just as well for a 2.25kg bone-in leg joint.

Sardines are a great tasting and relatively cheap fish; homemade tapenade and the slow cooked tomatoes flatter its flavour beautifully. If cooking this dish for lunch, maybe pop the tomatoes in the oven while you're making breakfast.

Adding a little olive oil to our bread mix makes for an even richer taste. Quick and easy to make, this foccacia looks so impressive and is served on the side of a pasta dish or as part of an antipasti platter.
