Olive Variety: Gordal Pitted Olive
Curing Method: Conventional
Origin: TSeville, Andalusia
Time of Harvest: September / October
Description: The name gordal means “the fat one” due to its round shape and large size (over 6gr). Due to its low oil content it is exclusively used for table olives. It has a fine delicate flavor, similar to manzanilla, and a firm, meaty texture. Losada uses a neutral brine which results in a balanced salt to bitterness ratio, so that you can really taste the flesh of the olive.
Serving Recommendations: Sometimes called "queen olives", Gordals can be enjoyed on their own or stuffed with any variety of items, from blue cheese to pickled garlic.
