Morgenster's Black Olive paste is made by
grinding cured, stoned olives to a smooth paste. Sometimes confused with
tapenade, this olive paste is made with the addition of a little sea salt and
some Morgenster Extra Virgin Olive oil. It can
easily be converted into a traditional tapenade with the addition of chopped
anchovy and garlic – or make your very own version of tapenade by adding one or
two of your favourite ingredients - try roasted bell
peppers, finely chopped lemon zest, chilli, or chopped flat leaf parsley.
Unmistakably olive and yet often
enjoyed by people who don't eat olives. Black Olive paste has a higher oil
content than its Green counterpart, caused by the riper olives. The piquant
flavours can be used to enhance the taste of other ingredients like cheese,
cold meats and vegetables.

A variety of black
olives are used to make Morgenster Black Olive Paste.
Cured olives are
de-pipped and ground to form a smooth paste
which is moistened with the addition of Morgenster Extra Virgin olive oil and
seasoned with a touch of Sea Salt.
This is a wonderfully versatile product; use a teaspoon full to enhance your favourite salad dressing, stir into tuna or chicken mayonnaise, spread on toasted bruschetta and top with cold meats or cheese, stir into steaming hot pasta for a quick meal or add to pasta salad, spread onto a pizza base with or instead of the tomato topping, Black paste also makes a good substitute for mint sauce with roast lamb.
