Our products in jars are prepared using the same attention to quality, that Costa Dei Rosmarini puts into producing its extra virgin olive oil. Among all of them, the Pitted Taggiasca Olives certainly get the main success. Thanks to the delicate taste and the quality of the oil used to preserve them, these are probably the most successful olives among the renowned hotels and restaurants in Liguria.
The Taggiasca olives Costa Dei Rosmarini distinguish themselves from other competitors as for the following Unique Selling Points:
• The high quality of the extra virgin oil used for their preservation, so that the oil as well can be used together with the olives in the dishes of several famous chefs like “Sadler” in Milan. On the contrary, before using the competitor products, the preserve oil must be thrown away because of its bad taste.
• The different colours of the olives. Costa Dei Rosmarini picks up the olives at the right harvest moment, when they start changing their colour (“invaiatura”). This property guarantees the sweetness and consistence of the olives.
The small and sweet olives Costa Dei Rosmarini have a delicate fruity fragrance. It takes a lot of time to prepare this Ligurian specialty because the olives go through the traditional pickling process for 5 months. The stones are subsequently eliminated and the olives are put in extra virgin olive oil together with Ligurian aromatic herbs. A slight pasteurization makes it possible to avoid any kind of preservative. The black Taggiasca olives add a special delicious taste to the dishes. They can be served with aperitifs and as final ingredient, added to salads and many other dishes such as sauces for pasta, boiled fish and meat. It is advisable not to cook these particular olives, as the heat may add a bitter taste to the product.
Costa Dei Rosmarini proposes the same Taggiasca olives in the Brine version as well as crushed and preserved in extra virgin olive oil. This Taggiasca olive paste is appreciated by the best chefs for preparing sauces and canapés.
