We started picking the koroneiki olive trees on the 7th of December. It is always a great time when harvesting starts and it is celebrated with toasted bread deeped in a mix of fresh olive oil, lemon juice and oregano in the kitchen of the press factory! Simple, authentic, healing flavors!!
Perhaps this would be a good time to suggest an amazing marinating sauce for steaks. Mix the ingredients below by shaking, and pour it over thawed steaks. Stir well to ensure that the liquid has covered the steaks evenly, cover and put in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
- 1/2 cup Paeleon EVOO
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tsp ground oregano
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 cup mustard (of your choice)
- 1 tsp pepper
The harvesting of the Koroneiki olive trees continues. We still have 3 groups working at different locations. In a couple of weeks, one of the groups will stop harvesting while the other two will stay busy until the end of February.
The first batch of fresh Paeleon EVOO is scheduled to leave Greece by mid February. I also expect to have the analysis of the quality characteristics by the end of this month.
