Additionally, in Aceitunas El Cortijo, we add sliced red pepper. Like all of our Gourmet Products, they are made by hand and one by one.
Aubergine-Flavoured OlivesAubergine-Flavoured Olives
The Aubergine-Flavoured Olives are one of our gastronomic wonders. In this case, The Pitless Gordal Olive has been seasoned in the broth that the aubergines give off. In Aceitunas El Cortijo we wanted to adapt the traditional recipe and print our seal of identity. That’s why aside from dressing them in De la Vera red pepper, laurel and cumin, we have added a pinch of spice. Not only have we kept that characteristic aubergine flavour, but we have also widened this product’s acceptance to another audience.
Spicy BanderillasSpicy Banderillas
The Spicy Banderillas are skewers made of Queen Onions, pepper, pepper-stuffed olives, hot chillies and cucumber, respectively. The spice that the chillies give to these skewers is just enough to be able to enjoy this aperitif in company and with a very cold jug of bear.
Hot ChilliesHot Chillies
The hot chillies are a long green pepper used for pickling. When pickling with water, salt and white wine vinegar, the chilli’s colour becomes softer, tending towards yellow. Precisely, the spice of the chillis is beneficial for the stomach. The chemical component that composes them (capsaicin) causes an increase in the overall temperature of the body. Consequently, the body needs an extra supply of energy and it will go to the glycogen reserves to feed itself, causing you to lose weight. Other benefits of the hot chillies regular intake include:
- Anti-inflammatory power.
- Perfect ally to fight ulcers.
- Great source of vitamins and minerals, such as A, E, C and iron.
- Aphrosidiac product as it favours the production of endorphins.
