Mirogallo Olive Spread
A perfect paste made from flavorful, brine-cured Termiti Olives finely blended with the Belfiore family's own extra virgin olive oil. This ultra-savory patè has a spreadable, whipped texture and leaves the palate completely clean.
Termiti olives are grown by the Belfiore family on their farm in Matera, in the heart of Basilicata. The olives are harvested just as they are beginning to blush, from mid-September through mid-October. After being sorted and washed, the selected olives are cured in a brine of water and salt for 90 to 120 days, during which time they undergo the process of lactic fermentation. The olives are drained, crushed, and pitted, then blended with fine extra virgin olive oil into a luscious spread.
This patè di olive is a convenient flavor-enhancer for so many Mediterranean dishes—no need to waste time and effort pitting and chopping olives!
